  • We were late arriving, having spent most of the day at nearby Hanbury Hall and just called in on the off-chance, not expecting to get a timed ticket into the house, especially as a sign in the car par...  read more »
  • Arrived after 3pm to find that all the tickets to see the house had gone. This is the first time when visiting a NT property that we have found such restrictions. Did manage to see around the outside ...  read more »
  • We enjoyed the hall - as you ascend through the house you can see the priests' hole (where a Catholic priest hid while the house was being searched). The gardens are even better - there are some lovel...  read more »
  • They advertised dog friendly! They weren't and didn't allow us in. DISAPPOINTING. An hour and half trip. False advertising!
  • Beautiful gardens and one of the best little riverside woodland walks there is ; especially in spring with bluebells all around. Only 4 stars as not overly child friendly - they need a playground! Would still recommend for those who love a peaceful walk.
  • My husband and I visited this National Trust site today, on mother's day. There were a lot of people there, but not too many to where it was unpleasant. I think not that many people know about this place. We now have our National Trust membership, so we easily walked through the entrance and we're given tickets to view the house by a lovely lady and a map of the grounds. As you walk in, there is a full restaurant, used book shop, gift shop, Toilets, and an area to buy some plants. Just past that are the gardens (which were closed this time of year) and the entrance to the house. Everyone working there as a volunteer was very kind and knowledgeable. Each one smiled or greeted us as we walked into each room. It only took us about 45 minutes to get through everything, but we are not the type of read everything as we go along. Then we walked to visit the two churches. One church was open and nice inside. Although the other was closed, there was a picturesque graveyard behind it. We also visited the sheep... or whatever type of animal it was. Haha. Afterwards we enjoyed a nice cream tea for only £3.50 in their full restaurant. We really enjoyed that and it was of great value. It seemed they offered numerous meal options and everyone eating seemed to be enjoying themselves. We also bought some mead and postcards from the gift shop. There were numerous unique items in there, including an ice cream container for those people who just have to have it everywhere they go. ;) I bought two used hardcover books from the book shop for £2.50 each. Their book selection was organised very well with many good options. We also noticed some beautiful rose bush options for sale, along with some herbs and flowers. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this place for a nice half day trip out in the Midlands!
  • Nice big property, loads of explorable woodland and gardens, worth taking a camera for some of the sights. The house is ok from memory, and you can go onto the roof to look across the grounds
  • Lovely house helpful staff and gardens are well kept
