The house is so interesting and it was good to have the audio in each room. We were amazed to see how much like her ancestor Princess Diana looked.

A lovely friendly place to go wi children and dogs. Most people friendly and have a chat, all the dogs seem happy to be out walking and meeting new friends. A popular place for meeting friends for the children to play in the park.
