Really beautiful historic site. Well worth a walk around the grounds. The mill is really remarkably. We went on the boat and enjoyed that as well. The tea house was a nice break with very good cakes.
Interesting house and mill... our guide round house Gill very good other staff not very wellcoming
Nice place to visit. The house has an interesting history, with an eclectic mix of objects and some good paintings. However access is limited to less than ten rooms. The location is lovely with lots of space to walk and picnic.
Great location and interesting amount of things to do
Made famous in the popular wartime movie 'The Eagle Has Landed' with Michael Caine, Larry Hagman & Donald Sutherland. The water mill was repaired and put back in to use for the movie; the pub opposite the church has since been demolished. The approach to the village is down an untouched country lane which seemingly transports you back in time. Lovely picturesque location.
