This was a wonderful tour of an artists' former home and gardens. We learned a lot and were awed by some of the beautiful outdoor areas.

This out of the way place was a nice find, especially if one enjoys paintings. The history of the estate and how TC Steele came to be such an artist worth the visit. Much kept in original condition, especially the house and furnishings.
