It was a cold and dreary day when I made my way out to Oatlands. It is in the middle of Hunt Country and there are only large farms in the vicinity. However I happily found it without too much trouble and lucked out on arriving about 15 minutes before the next tour. Upon arriving at the house after a short walk from the old barn (now cafe, shop and visitors center), my soon to be guide, let me in the house out of the cold. The other members of my tour soon arrived from wandering the grounds. The guide was delightful and had so much information to share about this lovely 200+ year old home/plantation. The tour is guided for throughout the first floor and then your are given free rein to visit the second floor where there are signs posted with information. Following the visit to the house, I took a brief walk in the garden, but as it was November when I visited, there wasn't much to see. Another big draw to Oatlands is their Afternoon Tea which is normally at 1pm of certain days (schedule on their website), but you have to have a reservation so they can plan for enough food (no walk ins, as I learned).
