Lovely visit to a bygone era. We enjoyed our Mother's Day tea. The ladies really went all out. The new manager is bringing lots of fresh ideas....the Mother's Day tea was the largest crowd I've seen in all the years I've attended. Beautiful grounds, amazing home.
We were in town for a wedding and made plans to tour Avoca. I checked the website for hours and we planned accordingly. As we arrived the digital sign out front said "Open 11-3." When we walked up the path, the manual sign said "closed." We were then told it was closed due to a private event. The place looks amazing, but they should update the website AND the sign at the road when they are closed.
