Driven past this place so many times but finally decided to stop and visit. Didn’t go in the house due to not having time but the gardens, tea room, shop and small antique shop is worth a visit. No dogs allowed though.

The house is visited with guided tours. The guide was pleasant and knowledgeable, though perhaps over-emphasising family history at the expense of information actually about objects and pictures in each room. Outside the gardens are delightful. This is one worth visiting!

I have seen them in the grounds on leads so I would say yes , it's just when you go in the house you would have to leave them out side , but you will enjoy the day out !!!
