A lovely treat-filled tearoom, play area and gardens with a wondrous house attached. This is a remarkable well-preserved and carefully maintained Victorian dwelling-place. The wallpaper in the library walls is just as it was. The sculpture is all in excellent condition, scrupulously cleaned. The copper cooking utensils are treated, spotless and gleaming. All of this upkeep takes energy and time.  It’s paid off. Here you feel part of the family. The furniture and the mementos tell their stories. You can sense how the fortunes of the household wavered and wobbled and recovered wealthily. Outside in the grounds – which are open all year round there are bedding plants. And any number of statues.   And a fern dell. And a grotto. Worth visiting and revisiting. A place that could never grow stale.
