We stopped here on a whim with our three teenagers. What a surprise to find a Harry Potter connection plus beautiful grounds. My kids insisted on doing the house tour (what?!?!?) and it was lovely.

We were traveling to the West Country and wanted somewhere to break our journey. Parking was easy even during school holidays, with helpful volunteers to explain how members can use the car park. Information was readily available so that we knew what was available and...More
