We stopped here for a quick look at house, but time restraints did not allow for a longer visit. Went to cafe for a refuel, extremely busy but good. Lovely gift shop

I think we must've been there on tour day because there was a huge line and very few tables. We instead chose to get a sandwich from a nearby stand and spend more time in the gift shop. :)

Second attempt to get food and yep it closed extraordinarily early in comparison to the shop and grounds. A complete waste in the middle of July in the height of the tourist season. I messaged them to ask what time it was open to (as...More
