I've driven past the signs for this place for the last year and half and this week took a Dutch visitor and we were both hugely impressed. The exhibits are beautifully displayed, with interesting and informative details about the artists/sculptors; there is also a set of question cards for children which will make them think, and look twice. The artist... More

A grand mixture of paintings, lino cuts, pottery and glassware and furniture, many depicting scenes from nature.

Some excellent pieces of glass, ceramics and bronzes as well as a great example of American woodcarving - ducks on a rippling pond. We liked the large garden sculptures and found the guides very helpful. A well stocked shop with a good range of prints and books

I took a coach party of forty over-60s to this museum. We found the signposting was good, the parking arrangements excellent, the house itself of some historical interest, and the displays well presented, varied, and fascinating. The 3-D show of microscopic photographs had a high 'wow- factor'. Outdoor sculptures were similarly varied and imaginative. The shop was well stocked. The... More

This is a great place to visit if you are interested in Art and / or wildlife, but eat and drink before or after visiting! The service and quality is no doubt acceptable to regular loyal visitors but if they want to attract a wider audience then they really need to update their catering.
