Very expensive entry fee for what you get - walking through dark rooms with unspectacular paintings (I have degrees in art history and have worked for 2 museums). The few benches in the garden look as if they would collapse if you sat on them....More

Not open all the time so check carefully but once you get there enjoy the house and magnificent garden. Take time to see the church as well. Lovely village setting.
