Nice brisk walk around the gardens and castle, well worth getting up early to witness the early morning sunshine and drink in the country air.

This is so worth a visit and I have been several times. The toys and dolls houses are in such good condition. Mostly Victorian toys . The classroom is as it would have been over a century ago and the costumes are excellent.

It's free but also it has some interesting things to look at. If in the area, pop in and take a look. Also wander round to the back and see the old greenhouse (I can't spell the proper name!). You've then got a park and...More
