What child doesn't love hunting for frogs and newts? We have loads of creatures to discover in our ponds and water features. Make sure to look for the tadpoles who are just starting to wriggle.

After almost 20 years the doors of the house have been thrown open to the public. Significant parts of the ground floor and a few rooms upstairs have been restored to their former glory. They're unfurnished which gives you a great opportunity to marvel at the architecture. Check our opening times.
