Having read black diamonds it was fabulous to see the house. Robert made this now empty house come alive. We wish the new trust all the best in their endeavours to raise the house and its profile.

The house Is really impressive ,not very accessible as most of the time is hired for private functions . It's a good place for a relaxing walk with good views

Whilst we do open for weddings and private functions etc, we are usually open at least three if not more days per week for pre-booked tours. Take a look at our website, book a tour and come and see us.
