What a lovely house previously owned by the a runner family. It is advisable to have the tour first as the guides have such a wealth of knowledge to enrich your visit. Lovely but small gardens to go a... read more »
Pleasant property to view that belonged to the Brunner family (Brunner Mond/ICI). Tudor Manor house surrounded by lots of gardens and woodland that was difficult to enjoy because of the poor weather.
We saw that there were guided tours in the house at 11 and 12 (last one may have been 11:45), but well worth doing. We arrived at 10;20 to a very freindly greeting and explanation of the House and Gro... read more »
I would give this lovely place a 5 star but unfortunately as a disabled person I find the facilities lacking. As well as the very limited disabled parking, the disabled toilets by the shop and restaurant does not have a lock on it . It would be nice if there were some disabled space in the main car park as well where some of it is on the same level as the gardens
Very nicely done. Great view from the tower. Very "homely" house. Not your usual pompous National Trust stately home style house.
Lovely NT property and had the privilege of being hosted by a previous resident - which really bought the place to life - The house is amazing - but the walk through the gardens and the surrounding fields is really enjoyable. Make sure you get a look at the donkey wheel too!
Well managed NT property. Interesting tudor house, previously owned by Lady Brunner (Elizabeth Irving), grand daughter of Sir Henry Irving, the victorian stage actor. The various walled gardens are well tended and some are unique in their layout and style : I have not come across similar configuration at other NT properties. The 12th century tower is impressive, simply because of it's age and prominent location on the site. Some great opportunities to walk, both within the immediate grounds and into the woods beyond. If you want to stretch your legs, you will need to break the site boundary : this is easily done, as foot paths lead straight into the woods at the edge of the site. Staff are, in the main, helpful and friendly. Certainly worth a visit if you are an NT member and in the area.
Great venue, as long as all goes well. My child experienced a minor accident (quite painful, not life threatening) there is ZERO support on site (including a basic infirmary or first aid box available to visitors) and near zero willingness of staff to assist on a such an issue. Good to bear in mind if you'll be visiting with people who might need any sort of assistance
