Film fans may recall the house from the 1995 production of Sense and Sensibility, but its fine Georgian features and tranquil atmosphere mean it continues to attract visitors who simply have an appreciation of excellent architecture.

As well as the beautifully preserved interior of the building a charming walled garden is a good place to take tea on sunny days.
