“Thank goodness it was a sunny day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

otherwise the whole thing would have been a bit of a bore, we expected more for the £7 nterance fee ! and we travelled to it, because we had been to a steam rally last year and that was great !

“Great craft fair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

A wonderful house and grounds.
There is a craft fair Easter, August and in November and that is the only time the house is open. There is a £3.50 entrance fee but it is well worth it, There is some wonderful Jewellery by Trudy at the fair.

“Country Walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Great old house, grounds seemed a little tired and uncared for and the walk down to the river through the woods is very steep, not to bad going down but the walk back up is hard! be warned. entrance is free however and there is a nice little park for younger kids to play on just by the car park.
