Although the house is not open to the public at the moment, the surrounding parkland is definitely worth a visit. Take a picnic and a flask of coffee and enjoy the tranquility of this beautiful parkland.

Had a super walk here today, mansion to the right, lake to the left. Met lots of lucky local doggies who no doubt treat this place as an extension of their back yard! Friendly humans too.

The house was not open when we visited but we enjoyed a long walk through parkland and woods. There are no toilet facilities but a fantastic place for many varied walks.
