This is just the most beautiful place to go for a leisurely walk and to relax surrounded by beautiful gardens. The house is closed as it is derelict, but the gardens are fabulous and so interesting and relaxing. Surprisingly, it is free to go around as I would happily pay to spend a few hours walking around the gardens. There... More

Those garden is amazing even in the winter months. Perfect for a walk with children. The animals, like ducks and birds, are interesting to look at. Magical atmosphere!

We had never heard of the gardens previously. We have travelled quite a lot, and forgotten many of the sights seen, but we will never forget our visit here to these gardens. They should be advertised as a National treasure which has been perfectly maintained. Hopefully the house can be brought into use shortly also. The only essentials for a... More

The house itself is closed to the public and the tea rooms are only open at certain times of the year and, even then, only on certain days, however you can bring a picnic as there are tables at the car park. The walled garden and the walks... More

This is a real gem and is not well publicised, I only heard about it recently, for the first time, and my visit was almost accidental. There are a several walks including one along the Slaney and the full round takes about two hours. I visited in October and the weather was just perfect but I think this place would... More
