Extremely overcrowded, unreal to ask people to pay £20 parking - is it going to be £30 next year?? The market is seriously not worth it! We did pick up a nice few little bits for stocking fillers but stalls are very repetitive & extremely...More

We decided to give the Christmas market a visit today as we usually attend the Birmingham market every year, so seeing this advertised via Facenook we thought it would make a nice change. Have to admit £20 per car on a weekend is a tad...More

Lovely building and grounds but expensive to park and access the house and gardens. Had a very enjoyable afternoon and finished off in the farm shop which had very good quality deli.

Wonderful walk but we went late Nov and the Xmas market was just underway. There were loads of stalls and everyone so friendly - mulled wine an added bonus as we walked around.
