The estate was the home of the Gibbs family, who's fortune was founded on guano (bird poo!) The former Georgian mansion was remodelled in the Victorian Gothic style.
The estate has a fascinating history and the house was very much a family home - if you love English history here's a link to find out more - or just enjoy the photos of the beautiful gardens!
Some of these were taken a bit earlier in the year, but most on a visit a couple of weeks ago. The house is closed on a Thursday and it's much quieter in the grounds.
A perfect spot for a late Summer afternoon.x
