Alfred , Lord Tennyson lived here.
He was of course the Victorian poet.
The estate is now owned by two people who are well known in the Art World.
Their mission is to return the house and garden to how it would have been in the time of Tennyson.
They have the know-how to do this.
The garden will have a superb Walled Garden , complete with a Victorian styled green house.
The paths will be in keeping with the times.
Ornamental beds and vegetable plots will also be present.
What a great way to show people what a Victorian Walled Garden looked like.
The house will be a museum.
Again , the public will be able to visit.
There has been some feeling that the owners want the public kept out.
However, this is based on misinformation.
A cafe is now open and cottages will soon be available to rent.
This promises to be an exciting venture.
