This is not a huge and rambling house. It has a great working old kitchen. We were there in time to sample some fantastic freshly baked rolls and an apple crumble. The fantastic cook (Nicola) did a wonderful job... Well done!!!!

Visited here on Sunday - lots to see and we enjoyed the curators tour of the special wedding dress exhibition. Would have liked more time here as we arrived later than planned and only had 2 hours before it closed.
