Buildings from Collyweston stone and built in the 15th century, this institution is a sight to behold. The gardens were so pretty and well landscaped. Sadly we could not visit the museum because we did not book beforehand.

This place is beautiful, and the best part about it, is the actual occupants maintain the place and provide all the tours. There is a history here, and it is well worth the visit to have a look around. The occupants are very friendly and...More
