A lovely house with gardens to explore with a little church. The main house had a fire but you can explore it, then you can see where the family moved into one of the wings to live after the fire.

Enjoyed some time hear with two children following the Bat Trail. Not only were there bats to find in the trees each one had an answer to a quiz which was very informative. Baby bats are called cubs.The spooky cemetery was scary but enjoyable climax.

I would say the same. Alternatively there maybe a number you can ring if you go onto their eb page. I've recently watched The Landmark trust programme and think it should be restored.
