    We're new NT members and live locally so decided to try it. We parked in the first car park and took a lovely walk to the house. We had a look round but had to go to the Visitor's Office at the second...  more »

  • Words do not describe how special this place is. It's like stepping into a Walt Disney film. Went here the first weekend of spring 2017 when all the blossom was out on the trees, and it was magical. I felt truly at peace here and did not want to leave the place. I would highly recommend this place - especially in the spring!
  • Best national trust house so far. Better than all the grand houses. Far more interesting. Great walks
  • Absolutely stunning place, it's like stepping back in time. It's so calming and surrounded by hundreds of acres of greenbelt land, a place to escape the absurdity of modern life.
  • Beautiful area so peaceful, the staff are extremely knowledgeable and freindly. Would fully recommend a visit
  • Well laid out routes for walking with differing levels of difficulty and length. A lovely little tea room. Toilets.
