“Quaint”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Worth a visit. Very quaint and lovely thatched roofs. Great for a stroll through a pretty village. Cream teas and also a out door piano player in an out cafe.

“Beauty & Crafts”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Excellent grounds, but a good 6 mins from car park. Had a picnic and then had a look around the house which had various crafts and paintings for sale. Would have like more time looking around. Need at least 2 hours
