Excellent tour of home by Linda, she was very knowledgeable and gave the best tour of any places we visited. The home was well preserved and great history. The art gallery as you exit will leave you breathless, amazing.

The woodland and parkland of this Georgian house make for some wonderful walks. A bonus is that dogs are allowed - on leads - and benefit from some good exercise! The formal garden is immaculate and well stocked with shrubs and flower borders. The staff...More
