We found the entrance by accident through the estate shop. It is free access though. A sprawling estate with set gardens waterfeatures and kitchen gardens. It is a tad unkempt and clearly in need of an army of gardeners. We suspect the estate owners are...More

I am sorry you had different expectations to what you experienced. Staff usually advise visitors who are not accompanied by a guide that this is a work in progress. Parts of the gardens have been restored to their former glory and other parts have not...More

You reach the gardens by entering through the pottery shop, where you are given a map to find your way around. It is like entering another world, covered walkways, orchards, wild flowers in abundance, all give the appearance of being neglected but you find herbs...More

I'm glad you enjoyed your visit and sorry about the girl in the shop. She is an artist in the pottery who covers the shop sometimes. Customer interaction is not her forte but she has been made aware of this and is working on it!

A rather enchanting garden to wander around! The entrance was free but one is encouraged to give donation at the shop for the privilege. A beautiful stately home - to enjoy from the outside -- and interesting garden to look around. There is no coffee...More

General admission is €6, under 12 years is free, definitely worth a visit for such a historic site and interesting family heritage

Worth the adventurous bus trip. They're looking to restore the gardens to their former glory. Some parts are better than others but worth a look. The Villa viewable from outside only is very impressive.
