Fall colors and tea

Lived having tea and a beautifull walk on the estate. Must see the small museum on site. It's a little know place unfortunately but very interesting to know about.

We wanted to take friends to this lovely estate and do the small walks around the place. When we went to pay for parking (new to us), we were shocked at the cost -$11.00. This is totally unreasonable. We would have been happy to pay if it was a maximum of $5.00. Another couple, visiting from the Netherlands, decided not... More

Just opened today, we went my husband and I for Mother's Day! New hand, chefs and service. We went for high tea. They make their own clotted cream, preserves, etc. Very friendly and taste was excellent! Will return and recommend it highly!

This site is relatively easy to navigate and walk, however, if you have some physical challenges, then the inclines may not be for you as there are no handholds along the way.

Went in the Fall so most of the buildings were closed up and the gardens had been prepared for winter. The grounds and ruins are interesting. Walk to the waterfall wasn't worth it - just a stream going over some rocks. It would be nice to go back in the summer to see the grounds in full bloom.

We always take the dog with us and go walk the trails. Love the well manicured gounds. Wish dogs were welcomed on the terrace of the tea room. Paying parking but what can you do?

Ideal visit for tranquility and peace. Beautiful surroundings and gardens. One can walk the paths, sit on the stones or grass to eat a luncheon or other.
