This is a great place to let your kids run around. The property is huge and beautiful. They have an old village with live historical characters spinning thread or creating pottery. They have a petting zoo and tons of sheep roaming the property. They have a huge Easter Egg Hunt. The day of the hunt they have about 8 different natural egg dying stations set up for kids to see how eggs were historically dyed.

Kids may not appreciate it as much as their parents, but very historical and beautifully landscaped grounds are a good example of the plantation era.
