Beautifully restored and presented. Enthusiastic welcome. Free to wander at your own pace. Also gardens, stables/carriage, ballroom and original small house. Got lost in the atmosphere.

A beautiful old mansion, full of period furnitues, glass, paintings, etc. Self-guided tours. Many out-buildinds to explore as well. Old carriages were interesting. Beautiful garden.
