We didn't visit the house just the gardens .but was all very nice with lovely views and a nice place to sit overlooking the lake. We felt the café was a bit too expensive to eat there. But took a picnic.

We went mainly for the gardens, and were not disappointed - they are very extensive and very beautiful. The visit inside the house was a bonus as I hadn't realised it was open to the public. Only the ground floor and basement are ready for...More
