Stunning location for well run event that I cannot wait to return to next year. Beers are served at bars located in the pools, plenty of room outside the back of the venue for food tents.

I've visited many times and there is always something different happening there. From vintage fetes to tours to weddings, it's all a wonderful nostalgic trip back in time. Well worth a visit and nice to support a local project like this.
