Enjoy the warm welcoming atmosphere of the house, the well-stocked kitchen which is the oldest part of the building, and the cosy living rooms. Admire the fine furniture, sculptures, paintings and the beautiful, intricate plasterwork. Look up to the impressive decorative ceiling. It is truly magnificent.

Stroll through the peaceful walled gardens full of beautiful plants and flowers and enjoy the aromas floating around, especially in the rose garden. You can also follow a free children’s trail around the garden and discover medieval ruins and the history of Grey’s Court.
