Well worth a visit, very interesting afternoon visiting the hall with a stroll around the well kept gardens. Finally stopping for a cup of tea and cake. Lots of events to attend and impressive well maintained trained national trust site.

A beautiful place set in very scenic gardens all of which are immaculate and very well cared for. The guides were most informative regarding the family history of the hall. The little church in the gardens is well worth a visit. Recommended
