The National Trust maintain this property and grounds. There's always a welcome and every visit counts.

The lady who lives in the cottage just across the road from the exit came home as I was peeking over here hedge. Did she shout? No, she chatted then went in and opened the blinds to allow me to take a shot of her pretty cottage. A lovely end to the most peaceful and relaxing day both of us enjoyed so much. We will be returning in the hope that one day we will see the Kingfisher along the Blackwater river.

Did Hansel and Gretel live here?
