My friend and I went there in the winter holiday when there were snows. Simply playing with snow, skiing and watching the lovely deers occupy the whole day.

We take our grandchildren in to the Hall where there are lots of hands-on activities for them, and around the gardens and the lake. They even ASK to go there when they visit now.

to qualify the title:- after snow the place is buzzing with sledges etc, if the weather is good a walk around trhe lake and /or gardens is so peaceful-you wouldn't believe the scope of birdlife which you may encounter, BRING THE CAMERA AND THE BINOS. if the weather is naff, try the main hall- a bit of alsorts . it isn't jusyt a collection of stuffed animals, it really is educational, and I don't mean just for kids.
check before going on the website 'cos in the industrial museum over at the stables they have a steam engine which is only fired up on certain days. the industrial museum is a treasure trove-ever wondered how the old fashioned telephine exchange works? you can try it and see. DOGS SHOULD BE ON LEADS AT ALL TIMES. IT IS A DEER PARK AND THERE ARE SIGNS ON DISPLAY. I HAVE SEEN A DOG SHOT BECAUSE IT WAS WORRYING THE DEER (EVEN THOUGH THE OWNER THOUGHT IT WAS PLAYING WTH THEM!)
