Having prejudiced feelings about this place, I quickly changed my mind after hearing the story of Karens exciting but rather sad life. The interior is well kept and beautifullt redtored. Sumptuous garden makes you wonder what could possibly go wrong owning a place like this in the esrly 20 th century. As our friendly and informative guide took us around, it turned out to be a lot, if not everything going south for the famous writer. Well worth visiting but perhaps not for the youngest children.
