We stopped off here on our way back from a holiday in Norfolk. The grounds & house are quite impressive & glad that we took the time to visit. There's quite a lot of peacocks around the grounds that the kids enjoyed.

A very unusual manor house in that it is mainly a ruin but there are some rooms which have minimal decor. It has an atmosphere all its own and a very informal feel since there you are free to wander without guides watching your every...More
