Gothic beauty, Xmas decorations have to be seen to be believed

We visited on a very blustery dark day, and arrived to see the house in all its glory. It was... read more

What a truly magical place, to live here must be a dream come true.
Take a tip you definatly need much more time to visit the whole estate, we couldn't see the grounds as we went with our local tour company and we had a late tour. You would need to spend a whole day here and then I don't think you would see everything as it was mean't to be.
Paul was very informative at the start, we were then split into two groups as another tour bus was there. Val took over our section,and was a very good tour guide.
Will go again but at an earlier tour.
Put it on your wish list for somewhere to visit.

We have just returned from a wonderful day out. We were taken by our local coach company on a trip that was advertised as a magical Christmas. It certainly was! All the 52 rooms were beautifully presented,designed and themed. Paul, the owner, took us on a humorous and informative tour. We left wanting to return at another season. There was so much to take in and we'll return to spend time in the garden. We were lucky with the weather and the ride added to the general feeling of well being. The hospitality was second to none. I can only admire the creativity and innovation used in setting up the house for Christmas. It is a good idea to take your slippers or house shoes as outside shoes are not allowed in the house. Once we had been inside we could see why this request was made. It will be interesting to return as apparently the displays change each year. The house is also decorated for valentine's day and Easter.

A fantastic day out. We spent three hours being shown around the 52 decorated rooms of this quite spectacular house. We did'nt have time to visit the gardens as was dark when house tour finished! We will revisit next year and take an earlier house tour. You just cannot see all of the collections in one visit. This is without doubt the most interesting house we have ever visited
and the owners are a charming couple. This is a must see attraction.
