A wonderful "castle" well kept and with a homely feeling reflecting the fact that the Strickland family still live there. Many unique features to enjoy. Gardens and grounds give families of all ages somewhere to explore whatever the season.

This medieval house is home to the Strickland family as still has a lived in feel. There are also gardens to enjoy, a delightful rock garden, collection of hardy ferns, and a new stumpery.

The garden and grounds are beautiful! The colours in the garden were fantastic! The staff and gardeners were very friendly. A Halloween activity was put on for the children too.

Nice house and grounds for a walk, bit expensive for what is really a house and not a castle, plenty of parking, large grounds to have a walk round

Yes: photos are now allowed everywhere inside the House but not with flash. This includes the Inlaid Chamber where photography was formerly forbidden.
