This was a grand old house with plenty of character. Unfortunately the family really haven't maintained the premises. I am sure there a plenty of stories to tell but really in this day and age when charging as they do, they really should be putting back into the property. Sorry, but I was sorely disappointed.

I was with a group of 40 and we were all entranced by Chris Morgan's telling of the history of the place. He spoke with great warmth and obvious love and determination to continue the task of preserving such an important part of our history. The 50 room house (castle?) is amazing and filled with extraordinary furniture, pictures, and of... More

Grand 19th century house brought back from disrepair by the current owners' family. A very interesting and lovely place that you can walk through for a reasonable fee. There is information to read on the history and details of many of the rooms, throughout the house. Lots of artwork, photos, collections and memorabilia. We were fortunate in being able to... More

A must see if your in the Bathurst area. Just a short drive from Bathurst. Brimming with collectables and an amazing history to the house

The house look amazing, it's built from granite, it's a family home which means parts are off limits but there is still lots to see, there's info signs around the grounds, it does need a lot of work but I highly recommend dropping in to see a piece of our history

A great heritage house to visit if you are interested in antiques and all things old! The family living there (Morgan's) who bought it from the original family are very welcoming and love to answer any questions. There are plenty of curios and antiques to ponder over and the gardens are also lovely. There is a small cost to enter... More

It is not often that you get to see one family's labour of love as the house has been gradually being brought back from the brink. This is a work in progress and as such would be good to go back and see the progress. We did a self-guided tour and was fascinating to see this grand old girl and... More

Absolutely amazing, so many beautiful homemade goodies, with choice of teas, coffee and orange juice. Yummy sausage rolls and tiny quiche, sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, meringues, profiteroles, strawberries in chocolate , tiny melting moments, tiny orange cakes, mince pies. WOW.

We stumbled upon this place by accident and found the house and grounds interesting. Walking around family belongings and seeing the family was a bit uncomfortable but got used to it quickly.

Loved it, I have always loved the building and being able to see the entire property including original entry, stables, church, gardens & main house was amazing. The stories we were told by candlelight were also appropriate for everyone in the audience. Yes, the building is magnificent and steeped in history. Yes, parts of the building need some TLC but...
