Wonderful old house,many beautiful rooms to look in with some beautiful old furnishings. Enjoyed our visit,didn’t find it very spooky but would say it would be at night, if you did the night tour and stayed maybe next time.

We spent a very enjoyable 2 hours looking around this homestead. Our guide, Lawrence was very informative about both the original owners and the renovation carried out by his father. We loved the antiques and the history tinged with humour. Would thoroughly recommend the tour!

Has lots of potential. Needs a re vamp. Get rid of Halloween stuff from the ball room. In the shop you enter and leave have some decent gift shop stuff, not pots n pans. Very disappointing, would not go back in a hurry

Cheryl I don't recall the entry fees, sorry. They run the ghost tour, I think, as part of an overnight accommodation package, at night. There is no restriction on photography.
