We've visited this place twice. Undoubtedly a fine house inside and out and lovely gardens, there is something lacking in the atmosphere. A downside is parking is a good walk away from the entrance. Once inside the grounds there are some very interesting cobbled ateas,...More

I don't know what sections of the house were used in the John Carter film but i do know that the total cost of entering the property is £12.20 for an adult and £30.50 for a family. Enjoy you visit!
