Sunnycroft is a small yet sweet visit, as it only has a house and a few other things. The visit is very short, as of the lack of things to do there. All together, I wouldn't really recommend, as it was quite a forgettable experience.

A lovely home to visit especially if you like needlework. Lots of interesting things to see. Beautifully kept gardens to relax in. Excellent cake on offer! Would recommend a visit to this home.

Visited recently and pleasantly surprised. Situated in an estate the first thing that you see are massive redwood trees lining the driveway. The house is very interesting and gardens nice. The highlight was the tea room, the women serving were lovely. Thank you
