An excellent museum, with helpful staff (historical interpreters). They have recreated the smells as well, with herbs and food stuffs. The gardens are also excellent, with lots of insects and wildlife. A very good cafe as well.

An historic and beautiful building in lovely grounds. Delightful cafe with huge sandwiches. Good gift shop. House itself small and with great connections to USA. Guided tours no longer available, but helpful and informative attendants. Village also worth a wander around
