Brought my Dad here for a visit and he loved it. The grounds were lovely for walking in. It was a joy to visit. Bit of a walk to the conservatory but worth the effort. Had lovely coffee and cake. We will be back.

Spent a lovely afternoon walking amongst the trees and gardens. Still undergoing renovation but this does not detract from the experience. Make sure you visit the beautiful conservatory. :-)

Hello, so sorry for the delay in responding. The gardens are free apart from a parking charge which is 4.00 euro for as long as you wish to stay. The house is a ruin and so is not accessible, but the gardens are on a... More
