We called today for the first time in forty years. The staff are lovely , but to be honest there isn't a great deal to see and do here. The herb garden was full of weeds literally. Not impressed and I wouldn't go back.

Really good place to go to teach the children about local history. There's always loads of things going on. We visit a few times a year to enjoy the Halloween, Christmas and many other organised days that they hold.
