Excellent house to visit whatever the weather. The grounds are interesting especially the deer proof kitchen garden. Teas and coffees in a relaxed environment and the fabulous Chorley collection upstairs. We’ll be back.

A simple place, but a pleasure to visit, excellent staff. Lovely to see parents and children interacting on arts and crafts. The wild birds were a joy to watch, the walk around the grounds was refreshment for the soul
