A delightful short visit as we arrived just half an hour before it closed. What a beautiful church ! The guide certainly knew his stuff about the Manor, very knowledgeable. Check it is open before going as opening times are limited.

A hidden stone built manor house next to a beautiful church. It gives a strong scence of peace in both the location and the more formal gardens. It is hard to find, the entrance is awkward, and the opening times limited. But somehow this all...More
