A lovely place with a lot of interesting history. Its not massive but the collection makes a nice afternoon out. There are regular food festivals and historic events. It makes a beautiful setting for weddings with the church next door.
Visited for their Christmas craft fair. Lots of different items to buy. It was a lovely way to get in the mood for Christmas. The craft fair is held in the grounds so cannot comment on the house itself.
We went over for the food festival. It's a long drive to the venue, so don't think of using a bus, and a taxi will most likely be pricey. The grounds are this endless expanse of green. With hills in the distance. There is a river that runs next to it, and there are a lot of water activities. There's a hydro electric power generator there that generates about 150kw. The food festival was great, tried charcoal cheddar cheese which was exquisite. The burgers were great as were the German sausages, ice cream. And literally everything about it. Definitely going early next year
It's very peaceful in winter
We attended a food festival here rather than to visit the house/grounds but really enjoyed it. Beautiful place and we'll be looking for future events here to visit again.
