We, as a family of 4 plus 2 grandparents (aged 7 - 70yrs!!) Visited here on a Sunday afternoon. We all enjoyed the grounds very much. Plenty of space to let the children let off steam! Worth a visit.

Great place for families, with a relatively newly constructed playground. Excellent for walks any time of year. Tea rooms and miniature railway open in the summer season. Rides in horse and chariot also available.
