This is a great National Trust property and when the weather is good its grounds are great to walk around. You can eat in the café or picnic in the grounds or by the lake

A wonderful "castle" well kept and with a homely feeling reflecting the fact that the Strickland family still live there. Many unique features to enjoy. Gardens and grounds give families of all ages somewhere to explore whatever the season.
