This house was stunning. You should not miss this tour. I felt like I was inside Downton Abbey and the grounds were absolutely beautiful! Don't skip this!

Quite possibly my favourite place in the world. Beautiful settings, beautiful scenery and beautiful people. You would walk for hours and still see something more beautiful than the last. Highly recommend

Leave the car outside and take a trip threw the park on one of the jaunting cars. It's a lovey experience and the driver updated is on all the history along the way. It's so beautiful and the smallies loved it

A very interesting history to the house accompanied by superb guided tour. The traditional farms are a must as each farm house has a 'farmer's wife' who recalls the way of life as it was.
