I just loved it, the owner was very friendly and we enjoyed hearing about Downton and Emma being filmed there, tea & cake very nice too!

Visited today a lovely experience, it was a Mother’s Day present. The owner greeted us at the gate & the staff were wonderful. The house guides were so knowledgeable & the tea tearoom staff so efficient & kind.
