I did not take many photos in the house because of the low light. This patchwork quilt is only one small one of the many on display.
What was evident was that like in many places health and safety has gone mad. One of my strongest memories was the gingerbread made in Conkey's Tavern by a member of the staff in costume. This is no longer allowed "for health and safety reasons ". A fuller explanation can be found on this trip advisor report. We then also discovered in the herb shop that the very popular apple pie spices that used to be on sale are also prohibited for similar reasons!
The grounds and gardens were looking spectacular with a good array of spring flowers. We had our picnic amongst the primroses and violets.
The view is stunning.
We walked round an arboretum of Native American trees.
