  • Well organised, good parking and friendly staff. The car park is at the top of a steep hill so the walk down is a challenge, however they put on a transport buggy if needed. The manor house is very well kept and the grounds/views stunning. There is a nice cafe and facilities. We recommend this National Trust attraction.
  • Lovely place to visit. Interesting house, the home of Benjamin Disraeli, with some informative displays about him and his wife. Outside there is a walled garden where all the plants are helpfully labelled.
  • This property was once the home of Benjamin Disraeli. It's well worth a visit, though sadly (common to many NT properties) too many of the rooms are given over to exhibitions rather than being period furnished. Gardens are nice but not massive, though there is also an intersting walled garden. The site is hilly: and parking at the top of the hill with a climb down to the house then back up again after, there is a buggy service for less mobile visitors. Watch out for the traffic at the exit: it's left turn only and when we left there were roadworks a mile up the road and a long queue.
  • Interesting National Trust location. Enough there to fill a short morning or afternoon. Covers the house's history well, both the Victorian and WWII period. Walk from carpark is steep and quite long.
  • Lovely historic building with excellent talks offered. Restaurant nice but lighting dark due to conservation. Some rooms also could do with more interpretation in terms of Disraeli and his interests perhaps or the types of items to look out for.
