Loved the tour of this historic building. The trust are are gradually restoring it to it's former glory. It was featured on the BBC Restoration Programme in 2003 and won a heritage grant. Well worth a visit.

Renovation progressing even if slowly. Great stain glass and tiles. This visit was for gin festival, a great setting for a really enjoyable, well organised event. Buzzing atmosphere but always need to wrap up well for a visit here.

Stunning location for well run event that I cannot wait to return to next year. Beers are served at bars located in the pools, plenty of room outside the back of the venue for food tents.
