We visited on a very hot afternoon, there were half a dozen other visitors. A few more brown directional signs would be helpful. Well presented, free, and fortunately they built it near the car park, ideal for a picnic on a nice day. Lovely lake/pond...More
Car park small but not busy. Shame more not made of it. Seats would be nice. The ruins have had several lives. Amazed to think part of this was lived in until 1920. It is much bigger than appears from the front. To the side...More
