Beautiful Estate, offering numerous spectacles and events. If you are lucky enough to have good weather and can wander around the grounds as well, it is like stepping back into a bygone age.

We visited here recently. We were asked to wait a few minutes for the next tour, which turned out to be a personal tour with a very knowledgeable guide. The house is stunning, with lots of beautiful old furniture, decoration and artefacts. It is also...More

Booked the joint ticket for a house tour and afternoon tea, which is the best value at £25pp. Overall, thought it was very good value. The afternoon tea was really very good and served in the former ballroom - a lovely palatial setting for it....More
