There are many aspects of this venue that make it so worth a visit. The house is impressive, classic and elegant and looks very at home in the expansive grounds. The grounds and lawns are wonderfully well managed, they are immaculately presented. The Millennium garden leading up to the house is gentle, and beautifully softly planted. To the West side there is the woodland walk that follows the brook, the range and texture in the greens at the moment is fantastic. All gardeners take time to stop and talk to you. I spoke to a young lady employed by the estate to look after the horses and was delighted to note that she spoke of her employer both fondly and with great respect. A huge "shout out" for the tea room, filter coffee, and a fantastic bacon, brie and cranberry toastie. They come over and ask you during the meal "is everything OK sir", I love that they do that! I loved photographing this garden and will be back in the Autumn and Spring to update my images.

Wow, beautiful gardens with good walk paths, we really enjoyed our visit. We managed to walk over 10 000 steps. Very good views. There are some walk paths suitable for wheelchairs users. There is blue badge parking space available near the entrance, and a disabled toilet by the gate. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We had tea for 2 and a cake before leaving. They also had a menu of light meals. I highly recommend that if you enjoy walking, this is your place.

A hidden gem, lots of good walking for those wanting to tire out children. Great views from the castle at the top, augmented by wonderful gardens. It's a family owned estate, so you might be lucky enough to meet a member! As the name suggests, it's hilly, and really steep in parts, but well served by paths. The castle is good fun for kids.There are toilets by the entrance and behind the house, including one with baby change.
Quite a large garden, beautifully planted, if you fancy a bit of a hike there's a steepish hill with the ruins of a castle on the top of it, lovely views of the countryside from the top

Lovely place to visit. Bit of a climb to the top to see the folly castle but we'll worth it, views for miles. Follys everywhere and a good cup of tea in the cafe.
