We had the pleasure of visiting the well kept estate with wonderful gardens. Primarily we visited to go on the Segway tour and afternoon tea. However the venue was just right for a really enjoyable day.

Met family and friends here to celebrate a birthday and it was wonderful. Fab grounds and so much space. Great for outdoor activities with decent toilet facilities. Parking was just £4 for the day - what a bargain!
