Amazing. We were welcomed by the owner at the entrance and given a guided tour this lasted about three hours. Nothing was rushed and we had free access to everywhere. The tea room was excellent and very reasonably priced.

This hall is a real must if you are in the area. We visited during our Easter break and what a lovely home it is. We shall definitely return when the Hall is decorated for Christmas.

What a fantastic day out. Each room had at least one themed, dressed Christmas tree. The tour, conducted by the owner, was both informative and interesting. The china and dolls houses on display were a joy to see. Such a wide range of vintage/older items...More

We first visited the Hall about 6 years ago at Christmas. The place is still so very attractive and a 'must' at Yuletide. All very seasonal with lots of quirky bits.
