Lots of good books to choose from, however it is quite a small building

A great place for a stroll, and a rather stunning old house that could with with a bit of TLC. When we visited the café was open and I was told parts of the house were being refurbishment to be used as function / conference rooms and a wedding venue. The coffee was good and well priced, always a bonus for me. Lots to see and well worth a visit - parking is pay and display but you can pay on card. There are a number of toilets on site as well as a range of outbuildings and gardens we didn't have chance to explore.

Very nice grounds and a very impressive piece of history which people are working hard to maintain. The hedges and garden were a stand out feature, as well as the church and lake. The tranquility and beauty of the place though is slightly disturbed by the large number of dogs set loose over it's garden and grounds.
