Came here for a new years day walk and its so lovely, well worth the entrance charge. There is such a friendly ginger cat living in the house who followed us around and acted as a little tour guide! Beautiful gardens.

Really interesting gardens, I know they suffered rather over the last winter but the potential is amazing. It is a pity the terrace is closed off, but it looks like it may be in need of major restoration. The water gardens are lovely but again...More
