The park has wonderful walks and plenty of space for picnics and family & friend get-togethers. You can even pitch your gazebo for the afternoon and play all sorts of games.

A lovely day out in the gardens and in the house. It is well worth a visit, especially in the summer.

Free entry & parking to visit these beautifully tended gardens and expansive grassland walks, a haven for dog walkers. Lovely scented roses, little ponds, waterways, and serpentine lake all well kept and maintained. Lovely house in lovely surroundings make for a beautiful wedding venue..

Parking is on a nearby field, it's a bout a 5 minute walk to the event site. The film has sold out tonight so I imagine there could be a slight delay in exiting the estate.
