Although very difficult to get to being outside of town and lacking any proper signage, the house is well-worth your time visiting. It is a breathtaking country home, complete with botanical gardens filled with deer, pheasants, and buzzards.More

Special home in a very special location. On a clear day the view from the viewing platform (92 steps) makes the effort worthwhile! Helpful staff who were welcoming, knowledgeable and so passionate about the building and its history. Lovely tearoom/restaurant.

This felt like a visit to a house like Downton Abbey. Much of it closed because the family still lives there, but very neat. Not many people there when we were, and they were preparing for filming the next day, but it's worth the trip....More
