I've visited this small, charming country house several times. The rooms available to the public are real family rooms and therefore you feel immediately at home. Family members are available to answer any questions you may have and one room contains specific information about the family's history. The grounds are open to walkers and there is a delightful café in... More

Some people are so lucky. This Regency house was open to the public at the weekend and it is a superb small country house (as against large stately home!). Beautifully set at the and of Hornsea Mere up a gently rising driveway and past a walled garden full of lovely flowers. This is where you will find a tea room... More

An interesting house, made even more interesting by the current owner, a most charming patrician. As he said it was a family home, and that showed in the furnishings and paintings. Lovely that it had not been spoilt by 'modernisation', and the Victorian conservatory had been removed from the house front. The Italianate architecture, continental furniture, and large windows all... More

What a wonderful warm welcome to our 47 visitors today. The owners were delightful and nothing was too much trouble to them. The house is beautiful with freedom to roam as you like. The history of the house very interesting. The views of Hornsea mere breathtaking. Walled garden spectacular, full of colour. The tea and cakes out of this world.... More

If you're looking for something special on the outskirts of Hornsea, visit Wassand estate on one their open weekends. This hidden away spot is delightful. Not many folk know about it, which in turn makes it even more special. There is an entrance fee, so come prepared. Personally I feel it's good value for money and places like this need... More

This lovely house and parkland, offers woodland walk, walled gardens, views of Hornsea Mere and beautiful house with stunning historical artefacts. Every one there including the owner was very friendly offering information about the house. The cakes in the tearoom, that are made on site were delicious.

Not as large as some of the stately homes but beautiful and well cared for. Spent a lovely Sunday afternoon there. We had homemade cake with tea in the enclosed garden. Definitely worth a visit.

been wanting to visit but only open 28 days this year so waited for a dry day. Very impressed with the house , grounds and tea rooms where all the cakes are home made, too many to choose from but I managed. Thank you to all those who are involved in keeping this attraction so well looked after.
