“well worth half a day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

the art mostly, but also the care with which the family have maintained a presence there, so that visitors feel like they may have just walked out of the room being viewed a few moments ago. Not anything very spectacular about the grounds, but as a living museum, I found the house excellent.

“Keep an eye out for special events”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Always events going on here throughout the Summer months. I visited with my daughter and her school and had a lovely day. There is a working farm on the Estate and we were able to see a sheep getting sheared. The was a falconry display and lots of other activities on offer. We picnicked on the manicured lawns and the kids played in the nearby play park. A lovely day out

“Music in an historic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The reason for our visit was to attend a concert. The bonus whilst there was to meet the actual owner who is such a pleasant man you feel you would like to plan a concert all over again there in an ideal setting, however complicated such an idea might be.

“A treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The situation and gardens are delightful. The house itself is special becase the family still live there therefore it is less like a museum. the uncomleted wing is fascinating. CAFE V. GOOD, TOO.
