A wonderful day. The scenery on the drive there was wonderful and the place it's self is wonderful. Very pretty and very tranquil. I recommend taking a picnic lunch and just taking your time.

What a little gem! Views to take your breath away and a great property to look at too National trust/English Heritage lovers would love the place. Very reasonably priced but you need a car or you need to be an Olympic cyclist to get there!!
