We visited this lovely National Trust property in the summer months.
The gardens were absolutely breathtaking with the most amazing colours and displays and as you walk down the large steps you see the most amazing statued fountain,the grounds are large with stunning views.As we walked through the grounds we noticed the odd bit of modern artwork on display,very large and cleverley thought out.
The house itself is stunning both inside and out,the outside looking quite like a French Chateau.
The interior of the house had been beautifully restored,the staff were very friendly and helpful giving lots of information about the history of the property.
We took a walk through woodland to the stables where there is a restaurant and a couple of shops.
From there we did a good walk to the plant centre,on the way there were some caves to explore set out in woodland with some stunning Japanese Acers full of colour.
The plant centre itself,sell lots of shrubs,trees and plants,seeds and various types of garden equipment,there is also a cafe available.
As we walked back to the manor,we decided to take a look at the large avery which was full of various species of stunning birds,photographers paradise if you can spot the birds.
Around the avery there was some amazing topiary of bird designed within the hedges.
This is a lovely place to visit,the grounds are full of colour and design and stunning.
The house is full of architecture inside and out and if you enjoy photography this is a great place to visit,especially in the summer months when the gardens are in full bloom.
