We visited to attend the market. Held on the lawn in a huge marquee there were plenty of stalls selling lovely things. A good selection of crafts with no duplications. Afterwards a short walk to the tearoom. Good selection of traybakes, cakes and drinks.

Dogs are allowed in the gardens if kept on leads and any refuse is removed. We have a dog friendly room attached to the tearoom for you to take shelter and enjoy a meal. Guide dogs are allowed in all areas of the house.
