Pretty gardens on a beautiful hot day. We went with our 14 month old and did take her buggy. We did manage but it’s not an ideal place for it and obviously you can’t go upstairs in the house with it. Worth a look round...More

A very attractive house with an eclectic mix of furniture. The public areas in the house are small as the house has been partially converted to lets. Very nice well tended gardens and plant sale area. Also very knowledgeable staff. Most NT properties are good,...More

Yes they had benches in the picnic area. Some people were sitting on blankets in the fields adjacent to the picnic area. I didn’t see any bins, for rubbish. We took ours home.
