Went there for a walk around, got really into the history of the place. You get lost in your mind, reliving how it must have been to have lived in those times. Will be going back with the family.

Had a lovely piece of chocolate cake that was very moist and was homemade. The pot of.tea was lovely too. The staff were very friendly and helpful and assisted with getting the pushchair up and down a few steps. Garden is stunning would highly recommend.

The food is excellent and consistent. Been there before... and the staff are so helpful. Afterwards we went round to the museum behind. What good value at £1 adults entrance fee. Loads to look at. Good venue for tourists.

Interesting house with almost an overload of information in every room. Make sure you go up into the attic...well worth the bending down required to get into the spaces. Nice relaxing garden and good tea room...we even enjoyed some free cake.

Didn't see any whilst I was there. Maybe guide dogs would be allowed
