We really enjoyed the Country Museum and spent over an hour reminiscing as we viewed the exhibits. The cafe, which is remote from the house, but next to the museum serves a good range of drinks and snacks, though the waitress was a little dozy, getting our order wrong and taking ages to actually get all that was needed to the table.
The picnic area is nice, near the parking but placed amongst trees on well-mown lawns.
We were able to park in the disabled parking area near the house, so I didn't have the long walk from the main car park.
The tour of the house was conducted by a superb guide, making everything so interesting. The house and its contents are just a little shabby and lived in - as it should be for it is still a family home. There are some real treasures there an some wonderful everyday things. I loved the refectory table with the carved monks on the legs and knife marks in the surface from the monks' knives long ago.
