A large old mansion houses a collection of paintings, prints and sculptures. And the garden is home to a sculpture park (which could do with a good trimming). Finish off the visit with a drink and home cooked foods and cakes at the large cafe.

This is worth a visit for the architecture of the house alone. Inside was some very nice paintings and various pottery and carvings. Outside are some metal carved animals etc..Small restaurant.
