Every aspect of a day out at this attraction reflects quality. Staff continue Ferdinand de Rothschild's tradition of excellent hospitality by providing a first class visitor welcome, removing any possibility of threshold fear created by this magnificent home in the style of a French Château.Judge's comments, VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2017
