Built in 1792 as a Temple of Apollo in romantic parkland this was the first work of Benjamin Latrobe who was responsible for the Capitol and the porticos of the White House Washington D.C.. Owned by Led Zeppelin in the 1970s, the present owner found it derelict in 1982. Whilst cream teas are served beneath a copy of the Elgin Marble frieze and the hall has been painted by French artists, a derelict dining room still shocks the unwary. Guided tours by the family take you through almost the whole house and make a most interesting afternoon. Spectacular Rhododendrons in parkland.
Admission: £6, £1.50 Children.
Coaches (21 seats or more) by appointment only.
