The gardens are lovely, especially the delphiniums (hope that's correct spelling) and there is a pleasant tear room.
A real jewel in the crown, a beautiful drive through parkland with cattle grazing. The house and grounds are delightful and huge efforts have been made to keep it non commercial and as much like the private home it was until the late 1990's. It is a tranquil haven amongst the hustle of an ever growing Ashford.

If you can make it for the National Delphinium Society day which is held annually , the beauty of the blooms will make for... More
I believe this is the only unchanged Jacobean house left in England. It is magnificient and seems to remain a secret to all but the locals; which is a shame since it deserves to be enjoyed by all. It is only a very short drive from Junction 9 of the M20 and there is plenty of parking, lovely walks and... More
