Always a must when in Torquay. Never disappoints as a visitor attraction, and yes, the man is still playing the piano in the tea garden. Easy to reach by bus & a nice walk back along the boardwalk by the stream, avoiding the traffic.

Very nice country park but well used by dog walkers and don't all pick up after their dogs. We went with a two year old who managed to get it on their shoes - yuk. Lovely otherwise.

We visited this after having spent a couple of hours walking round the village, unfortunately due to the expensive parking we could not stay long enough to explore all the grounds but will return to do this on another occasion.

We have walked there and driven there, neither r of which posed a problem. The walk is very scenic and on a level and... More

We have visited three times now and are always amazed that there is no charge to walk around the grounds. It is well used by families for a free afternoon out on a nice day. We walked from Torquay which takes about 20 minutes (via the way marked meadow). We were surprised there didn't seem to be a bus service... More

A small interesting manor house with gift shop and tea room. The church is worth a visit as is the craft workshops. This is all set in a beautiful country park.

Nothing there, very shabby, we could hear other people saying that there was not much to look at. It used to have such a lot to look at. Paid at the carpark, We were only there for about 15 minutes.

Lovely atmosphere, and good for camera buffs. You can listen to a gifted pianist, one side of the village, and go in the opposite direction, to visit a very classy, reasonably priced Inn for food and drinks.
