  • We came here to walk and see the snowdrops. We went a bit further and down to the River Severn, back by the lake. All very beautiful If not a bit muddy. Go prepared. The 2nd hand bookshop is good and ...  more »

  • Almost feel guilty giving it three stars, but here's the reality. We visited on an ideal sunny August afternoon. Our first surprise was how small the reception was - especially in relation to the size of the property. Our second was the woefully inadequate Tea Room. Small, under-stocked and expensive. If you're going to visit, take a picnic. And whatever you do, despite how lovely the seating looks, located in an orchard in front of said Tea Room, walk further into the beautiful grounds and find a quiet spot. Everyone was being pestered by plagues of wasps, which we attributed to the apple trees. Couldn't even finish my coffee. Big plus - the grounds are a delight, with a couple of walks around the lake that are simply stunning, giving picture postcard views of the house. We were hoping the House would redeem the experience - not so. The tour starts off as you'd expect, with plenty of history, but the family photos on clear view gave us a clue of what was to come. You're suddenly into what I can only describe as an indulgence, as room after room is full of modern stuff - Art, clothing blah blah blah - boring. No wonderful old kitchen to admire, no staff in period clothes, nothing... We're both National Trust Members, and have revisited plenty of properties, either to simply have another look around, or enjoy a coffee and cake in lovely surroundings. We won't be coming back...
  • Absolutely wonderful property, brilliantly preserved in time given the circumstances of remaining a family home to this day. Gardens are breathtaking, Phil Brown the gardener was an absolute mine of information. The volunteers were wonderful to us; really inspiring. Grounds were perfect for walkers too, and pet friendly. Don't miss it!
  • Lovely day out with lots of stalls selling various items to do with Apple's. They got the kids involved with Apple jucing and it was great to taste. It needs a few more benches I think, also some period clothing would work very well. All in all a great place to visit.
  • First visit but very impressed with this National Trust property. Perfect landscaping around a lake and the interior of the house is very interesting. Good walking to be had. Small cafe.
  • We had a great day out here. The park and gardens are gorgeous with a reasonable sized lake. There is a playground for younger children and some longer but gentle walks for those so inclined. The café is up to usual National Trust standards. The house is still lived in and so is not open until 2pm. The history is interesting and there are activity sheets for the children. The family's art collection is also displayed in some small galleries in the house.
