Guests can have a completely private experience, the apartment has its own private entrance and stairs and there is a large private garden for the sole use of guests.
However there is also always lots of friendly faces around the estate, from people working here to tenants who live here, so it is quite easy to have a chat or to ask questions about the local area.

Guests are free to explore most of the gardens of the estate, the only restrictions are the historic greenhouses of the walled garden which have not yet been restored and the agricultural stables next door.

The East Wing gardens are dedicated for the private use of our guests to enjoy sitting in the sun, having a BBQ or even playing croquet.

The West Wing gardens is where our family tends to hang out. You are free to stroll around these gardens or even come join us for a game of rounders or badminton.
