Just a quick note to say that the gardens are nice, the shop needs work, but overall this interesting place is enhanced by its room guides!

You are most welcome to visit the tea room without having to pay for entry to the house. On Saturday we open at 10.30 and our favourite treat is the heavenly cheese scone and butter. Enjoy your visit.
