  • The animal exhibits are spectacular but may split opinion. The artefacts displayed are interesting and wide ranging. The dioramas are stunning and really portray the distance in the natural habitat. T...  more »
  • Nice stately home. Large museum packed full of natural history and history on the owners and their explorations. The staff had extensive knowledge of the displays and would approach us and tell a little bit of history and stories behind the pieces. Plenty to do around the grounds too Craft village was smaller than expected but plenty of individualised gift and souvenirs. Food at cafe very nice, not too expensive but service was very slow (40 Min wait for sandwich)
  • A very worthwhile place to visit, loads of animals and artifacts in the Museum. The house isn't always open as used for Weddings too so check before travelling. The gardens make a nice walk and there are often open air events within the adjoining land. A pleasant place to spend a few hours.
  • Sat here now, no warning about buggies, when the supervisor came out spoke down to me and told me it is a field what do I expect. I've just paid £15 for a 20minute walk. Around one Maze which is fine as I got the buggy round. The second maize however was a badly thought the paths aren't wide enough or clearly marked. It's damaged my buggy and we had to leave the maze because it's to tight to get a buggy round. £15 we paid and he wouldn't give my money back when I've been here twenty minutes ? Half the blow up play bits aren't even blown up. You have to pay for any extras like the ride on tractors pony rides... so what extaxtly have a paid £15 for? A wristband and a walk in a field with difficulty 😬 Not happy with not being told about anything x
  • Love this place something for young and all. Well worth a visit they have a wonderful garden, fantastic tea room / restaurant that is good a price; the museum itself I could spend hours in it is so interesting.
  • Great place to take the family. The gardens are lovely with lots of room for children to run about. We held our little girl's third birthday party there and had a great time.
