Something for all the family here, very interesting historic house with interesting occupants! Staff are very helpful. The park is great for a walk, train ride or just a great climb in the children's play area. Nice little cafe to top it all.

We didn't know what to expect but found a treasure. Really interesting, a fantastic day. Pam one of the guides was a mine of useful, informative and humorous information. Outside in the park the dry stone walling installation was great. Well worth a visit.
