Staying at Seahouses it wasn't far to go to see the Chippendale exhibition. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Good parking, nice cafe with tasty food and friendly service. Lots of parkland to explore, very good day out.

We visited Paxton House when we were on holiday in may 2018 . It has excellent grounds to wander round and the guide on the tour of the house was very informative and approachable
