  • An interesting old house, and great if you like art. The guides are very well-informed about the history. The upstairs long gallery is an especially impressive space, well worth the walk up two flights of stairs.
  • A beautiful place to visit. The guided tour is a must thing to do. So many interesting facts on the house. All staff were friendly and the coconut flapjack at the cafe was truly amazing.
