We have often gone past here and never known it was open to the public. It was £4 entry, the guide was very good. The architecture is amazing and we met his great great grandsons wife and the family. Such a lovely place to visit.

Gday Mrs. H, My wife and I and children have lived here since 2012, my cousins before that, and I lived here as a child until the mid 90s. So, yes, the child may have been mine and I may have been that child 25 years ago, well a large child by that time

We hope you come again soon and reminisce!
