I remember hearing my mother talk of it as a kind of care home (Leonard Cheshire home), when she was a nurse up to the 1980s.
Now it's a private home, with owners who are not apparently keen on the EU, but there are a garden centre, the Ferrers Craft Centre and beautiful grounds. There are public footpaths which cross the grounds too, including the Ivanhoe Way.
We had time for a wander round between showers, took some photos and ate our picnic lunch in the car - a reminder of childhood!
