Very interesting to see how our ancestors lived and what they used on daily. Lots of antiques on display to look at and small gift shop to get your souvenir of the area.

Although we arrived here just after the season was over the gift shop was open and the lovely staff allowed us to explore the grounds! What a beautiful walk ! Looking forward to returning some day when the season is still on!
