A stunning place to visit in the autumn. The colours are beautiful. Take deep, empty pockets in case you see any chestnuts and meddlers going begging!

National Trust Cafes get rated by my Wife and myself by their scones. Both the the fruit and cheese scone get 8/10!

That's a bit of a "how long is a piece of string" question, without a reference to the speed of walking. I remember it as about 500m, so less than 5 minutes walking for me walking quickly or 10 minutes at a dawdle looking... More
