I have visited this venue 4 times now taking my grandchildren or different friends on each occasion. I think it is lovely for the children and a pleasant day out for all in general. Cafe and shop nice, pleasant staff, strawberries were delicious when I had them last year and I was lucky enough to go into the house on 1 occasion and really enjoyed it, the decor is beautiful wonderful for a wedding venue but apparently they only have certain open days where you can have a tour round. It was a lovely taste of how the other half can live - very whizzy yet fitting.
The gardens are very nice and the rockery is beautiful with a superb view. A lot of money has been thrown at this venue and it is tastefully done and I would assume that it is still being developed. There is only one fly in the ointment as far as I can see and that is the loos, very very basic, a big let down and as a previous reviewer commented 1 mixed gender loo and 1 disabled I think there was porta loo of some sort the first time I visited (steered clear of that) and because it was very busy on the first visit there were long queues and desperate children it was quite a strain for me because of the loo situation. I think they should make this a much higher priority because people with any complications or diabilities would do better to make sure they select a day when it is not so likely to be bustling with people.
All in all everyone I have taken there has really enjoyed the day out very much and talk of taking other friends/children.
