Lovely house, gardens and cafe with activities for little ones to enjoy - try getting your grandchildren away from the "mud-kitchen" under the trees. Beautifully presented and preserved house and a great walk in the walled gardens.

I don't know what sections of the house were used in the John Carter film but i do know that the total cost of entering the property is £12.20 for an adult and £30.50 for a family. Enjoy you visit!
