  • Well worth a visit. Historic family home with many interesting rooms. Outside is nice too with great views. Stable cafe was pricey so we didn’t try it.
  • Amazing maintenance of history. I got goosebumps seeing bedroom chambers 200 years old and beyond in very good condition. The dining halls and living rooms, wow! And I like that the family still lives there. Information was made available and all my queries were answered. The grounds were also well maintained. You could just close your eyes and imagine living in splendour in the 17th century I'll gladly recommend to any tourist.
