We have been going here since July last year and loved every visit. All the staff see so friendly. The last visit we did the 5.5 mile long " Wonders of Nature Trail" so peaceful and remote. It was great!!

I love this place. It’s so fun. It has a decent size playground which is extremely fun. It also has a bird hide which you see rare birds. If you are luck you could see a red kite.

A National Trust property with great views and lovely woodland walks. You may see wildlife roaming the woods or you may just want a place where the children can play on the swings. This is definitely a great place to visit!

Hi there, yes entrance to the estate is via a road and ramped access. Parts of the grounds/gardens are scooter friendly. Hope this helps.

Dogs welcome in grounds on leads; assistance dogs only allowed inside chapel and cafe's. Dogs are allowed in the library at the stables, which can be used to eat your cream scone and tea if it's rainy!
