Lovely place to go for a weekend walk. Farm animals and courtyard are lovely, lots to see and do for children. The house was also nice to go around for a tour and a nosey. Nice quaint place.

Ardress House is an absolutely delightful property that was enjoyable to visit. The old farmyard complete with freely roaming chickens, pens of goats and old farm equipment oozes with atmosphere of a bygone era. The house tour is not very long but it is surprisingly...More
