I had visited Osbourne House when I was a child and wanted to return for a while.
We visited on a lovely hot sunny day, the walled garden was a delight, the house was beautiful and very interesting, we had cool homemade lemonade with homemade cake on the patio before wandering down to the beach. This was a major highlight we could have been on a Caribbean island blue calm sea, free deckchairs to relax and take in the fantastic views , changing rooms and a lovely Tea room.
we then wandered up to swiss cottage , which I was a bit disappointed with ( probably because its designed with children and we were a couple) then took the shuttle bus back to the house.
All in all a great visit well worth the money
