Having visited a huge amount of stately homes and their respective gardens over the years that I have been writing my Top 100 Attractions books, I've been impressed by them all and secretly, if this was a book about what I liked to do, this book would be absolutely full of them, but it's not about me, it's about you and here at Milntown Estate and Gardens, you will most certainly not be disappointed! This wonderful house has so many stories to tell and as you walk around the house itself, you get the strange feeling as though the family have merely just left the room, as it still has that warm lived in feel, just adding to experience. Also, take the gardens themselves, they are simply stunning, all 15 acres of them and with a variety of walks around them, you can't help but get immersed within their sheer beauty.- Top 100 Review
