Interesting history, worth a visit. Incredible that the well to do should build such a place! Only open on Thursdays!

Check before you visit - open Thursdays - linked with lots of interesting history which is indicated on the information boards. Fabulous little place and totally free.

Found this via Google - otherwise I wouldn't have found it. There are no signposts at the entrance, just drive in through the gates between the lodges. Go down the drive until you reach a small dedicated car park on your right. Then just walk...More
