    A NT place and as ever, something for everyone. We took our grandchildren and upon entering the house they were given small booklet - perfect for helping them enjoy the house. Grounds and Gardens are ...  more »

    We thoroughly enjoyed walking through the extensive gardens and look forward to visiting again to see the effects of the 4 seasons. The Cowshed tea rooms outside seating area is rather depressing. Tab...  more »

    We visited the grounds, house and tea rooms and overall had a pleasant experience. The grounds are pretty and the gardens, seperated into small walled areas all of which have a different focus, are fu...  more »

  • Absolutely amazing walled garden! It is the main reason why we like to come to this place. House itself is nice and cozy, but rather small. Although we had very interesting tour there! Bluebell path is just gorgeous (obviously in spring only, but it is worth seeing)!
  • Very nice setting, with a picnic area out front, but it was a shame about the steep prices and the rude staff member we encountered. There's no discounted price to do the estate walk (which we've normally found to be available at National Trust grounds) and when we asked, the lady on the gate was quite short with us about the price being the same for the house or the estate walk. It'd no doubt be fine for members or for a proper visit, but not one to go to for a walk - unless you want to spend £12.50 each for the pleasure!
  • The rudeness of one staff member ruined the visit. The staff at the entrance were friendly, even giving our little dog a treat. We enjoyed a leisurely walk and tea and cake in the cafe. My wife decided she would have a look at the house while I sat with the dog in the sunshine. I couldn't believe it when my wife returned within five minutes. As she entered the house at 4.30 pm, the man on duty in the house brusquely said "I hope you're going to be quick! Five minutes at the most!" The property is advertised as being open until 5.00 pm, the Admission Fee is not cheap so this rudeness left a very nasty taste in the mouth.
  • A few changes have spoiled this in the four years since I visited last. The tower is now closed so the best view is missing. The tea room has moved from in front of the house and lawn to a shed at the back of the property with no views. Homemade cakes have gone. Worst is loads of little signs everywhere saying 'don't do this, don't do that'. And the non member entry fee is extortion for only garden visits. Disappointed 🙁
  • Tudor House, interesting gardens, and walks in the fields and woodlands. The house is small so can be very busy at peak times. Also parking is a bit limited and the overflow car park is undulating to say the least. Especially worth visiting during May for the bluebells in the woods, but a nice property all year round.
