Different flowers for every season. Many activities year around. Jazz, Opera, magic lantern to mention a couple... Lovely place to take a walk after having lunch in a Bristol restaurant.
A lovely old mansion. The backstory is interesting and the grounds are large and beautiful. However, nothing really distinguishes this from other old properties. Good to see if you’re in the neighborhood but not a must see.
