Beautiful spring evening by the lake enhanced by all the rejuvenation work. A brilliant clean up of the lake to bring it back to its former glory of the bygone years

Been here many times but took some friends in November 2018 who found it extremely interesting. Marvellous views over the part, informative staff and a great shop for those must haves. Would definitely recommend.

Cannon hall museum covers the life of the hall and grounds. Also deals with the History of the local community. That's vital for those growing up or moving into the area. Staff friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable.
