Worth the trip. The gardens are beautiful almost any time of year, but especially in the spring and summer. For the Christmas season the house is decorated in the style it would have been in that time period. The house has an interesting history as well as the grounds that were almost destroyed several years ago. The cafe serves good food typical of the area. Its definitely worth the trip.
