We had a stroll around the park grounds and garden whilst waiting for the tour. The formal garden has been renovated over recent years and obviously is not at its best at... More

We saw the ghost! Cafe does tea coffee and cake and we ate the last sandwiches. I'd like to suggest more choice in the cafe, but there were... More

A great frozen in time experience. If you're there when they do their candlelight experience, don't miss that!
