We called in here on the steam rally weekend which was good. The house only has a small formal garden with large wooded & grassed areas. Pleasant visit.

Dogs are allowed in the gardens if kept on leads and any refuse is removed. We have a dog friendly room attached to the tearoom for you to take shelter and enjoy a meal. Guide dogs are allowed in all areas of the house.
