Fab barns, grounds and gardens. Nice information and museum pieces as you walk around. Great place for a walk and a picnic. Free to get in if no events on. Nice looking cafe, if not the cheapest. Very friendly staff. Suitable for kids.
Visited for the food fair. Lots of tasty stuff to try. Barns are fairly impressive too, however not sure how interesting they'd be without the food to try. Worth a visit if you're local.
