Gentle place with charming story of recent inhabitants and lovely ruined old castle in the grounds. As usual for the NT the tea & scones were light and fresh.

This is a great manor house with all the usual artwork but it has a fantastic garden complete with a old castle ruin and mote, this is a must see if you are in the area

This is a real gem with not just one but two houses to visit plus gardens, park and walks. The C19 house is not that exciting but the ruined Old Castle and moat is an impossibly romantic site. A "must see" destination. Dog friendly.

This fourteenth century moated castle and gardens, is a hidden gem. The gardens are spectacular along with the medieval architecture. Take to time to meander, indulge the senses and soak up the atmosphere. You won't be disappointed.

Walking around the grounds you will be fine there are some hills so will work out the calf muscles haha but in the house it would probably be best to leave the pushchair downstairs

Hi. Yes you can take a dog as long as it's on a short lead. If you don't have one they will swap it for you at reception.
