This is a really interesting old house - it isn't large - but plenty to see and coffee shop on site too!

This magnificent old mansion house is great to explore. Hidden priest holes, an ancient Oak site where a king once hid. Interesting outbuildings, gardens and farm memorobilia.

I vaguely recall that I visited this place as a kid as part of a family day out. If I am brutally honest, I remember no details at all. So, it was with fresh eyes that I arrived just before Midday on a pleasant Saturday....More
