Really had a great time even if we were just a bunch of adults.. Probably wouldn't do it again, but an excellent experience for everyone to do at least once. I thought the pumpkins would have been real, but unfortunately learned they were all fake. Oh Well.

A very interesting afternoon out. The manor is in fact a number of buildings each with it's own guide in period costume. There was also a blacksmith working and it was a very hot day.
I loved seeing the contrast of the living styles of the rich and the not so rich. The staff were friendly and informative.
Much less touristy than other houses in the area, we in effect had a private tour.
