  • We met here for a family gathering - a walk and a picnic with 12 adults and 3 children. We were blessed with good weather but Allan Bank had advised we could eat our picnic inside if needed - you can'...  more »

  • Felt very unloved. Odd sort of place and appeared very scruffy. Last given a thorough cleaning years ago I should think. Don't waste the entrance fee.
  • Fantastic National Trust property. Lovely cafe, good chance to see Red Squirrels
  • Probably the best National Trust building we've been to. No on site car park unless you're disabled, about £5 for a few hours in the local car park. Plus nice cafe in the building and a very relaxed attitude in the house and on the grounds
  • Superb gem of the NT. Relaxed and informal rooms allow visitors to enjoy the space and dogs are positively encouraged. Grab a tea or coffee for yourself and wander between the stripped back rooms to appreciate the amazing vistas and local wildlife. Children are encouraged to explore their artistic side and discover the life of Beatrix Potter. Even the inclement weather couldn't detract from the incredible woodland walk of the grounds, with magnificent carpets of moss and rock piles.
  • Okay- not much about it. Really lovely gardens if you take time to explore.
