    This estate is an amazing survival story, allowing you to experience dignified 17th century settings. A unique achievement of this property is its committed conservation, much of it untouched by modern hands. Outside there is exciting restoration undergoing including the flower garden, kitchen garden, ha-ha and formal lawns.
