The parkland is lovely with 360 deg views. There are varied walks through the park and not strenuous. Don't miss out a visit to the birds of prey centre - well worth the money.

There is a small charge for the gardens and terraces, (pay at the Birds of Prey centre). The house is not open. When you pay ask for the walks leaflet/plan which is helpful, but was not immediately offered to us.
