Tucked away and easy to miss but wonderful to visit. The gardens are really laid out nicely and are quite tranquil. Colours from the flowers are amazing. The museum is cheap enough to enter and quite interesting. Remains of a fort on the lower level.

The building is nice as is the small museum it houses. The remains of the original fort are preserved downstairs. Not much left though. The grounds leading up to the house are well kept and make for a pleasant stroll.

We did this as part if a tour. No picture taking is allowed once inside. Some nice alfresco's paintings, but overall very plain.
