Spent about an hour and a quarter looking around the house itself, all set up for Christmas, very festive. Then spent a couple of hours enjoying afternoon tea in the Grecian Hall. Great food, great ambience and very good service.

A nice couple of hours spent looking around the house and gardens. Nice soup in the cafe too. The Christmas decorations didn't enhance the visit for me, infact a bit puzzled by darkened rooms filled with multiple Christmas trees, but I enjoyed the trip anyway.
