Lovely gardens, very interesting house and contents. History abounds everywhere. Easy access but be prepared for a fair walk from the parking area to the actual house and gardens (down a lovely scenic drive though)

My partner and I have been going to the food festive every year since it started. It really is a lovely visit and last year we did the house tour. We have already bought our tickets for this year and looking forward to attending again.
