Absolutely love coming here, beautiful place beautiful surroundings great woodland cafe with lovely staff. It's great place to visit not matter what time of year it is more »
Wonderful historic house, worth a look around when it's open. Check dates and times in advance. Take a walk around the woodlands, enjoy the squirrels and the stunning outdoors. Great cafe, check opening times. Good carpark. Lovely day out for those who like a quiet walk and/or a visit to the Tower.
This place is beautiful. Volunteers enthusiastically bring history to life. Real roundhead armour from the civil war beautiful old Tudor beams and tapestries... furniture of the era on loan from the V&A amazing original beams and arts and craft decor. Wow.
