Worth a visit on it's own during a day or go with the kids to see the lights both inside the house or in the garden. House is spectacular with many interesting rooms to see.

The Christmas display in the house was excellent- staff very helpful. The garden lights were not as good. Staff who served us in Winter Courtyard Cafe were rude: ‘ Don’t have time to put sprinkles on your hot chocolates’.
