  • House changes have taken away the wow factor from the morning room the ante room and the drawing room shame . The collections are displayed better than previously. The video of Sir Francis arriving at Plymouth was a bonus. The carriages well displayed and the gold state coach fantastic. Absolutely astounded to see the William Blake drawing hidden in a dark corner of the dining room what are you thinking of National Trust. Attention needed to loose loo seats and hand drier not working.and very muddy car park and drive.
  • Beautiful walks and garden. Restaurant offers nice light lunches. The carriage museum was very interesting. Lots of carriages to look at all of which have full description about them. Staff knowledgeable and helpful.
  • One of the nicer houses to visit. Lots of quiet walks around the grounds. Only downside was cafe. Service appalling. Took 1/2 hour for my wife's jacket potato by which time I'd well and truly finished!
  • Lovely NT place. Great gardens. Old house with lots of carriages in museum. Beautiful ceilings.
  • Very nice, easy to read information with push button audio on some of the card board cut outs. As a treat for those who enjoy museums. The old coaches are fantastic...but the queen's corranation golden coach is simply amazing.
