Our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and we learned a lot. Beautiful house on the inside. Nice place to take your time and walk the grounds too. Small fee to get in.

Toured around this classical style mansion which a very knowledgeable guide. Needs time to appreciate the décor and all that has been done to restore it to what you see today. Outside areas are extensive.

Lovely spot for a day out. Great crowd there today but the toilets were a disgrace. Filthy dirty and smelly, overflowing bins and no soap. A visit by a health inspector should sort them out.
