  • Nice building and gardens. Spent about 1 1/2 hours in house tour! Probably would spend a lot longer in the grounds on a good day.  more »
  • We took out national trust membership so went to see the house. Very interesting details about the Disraeli family and the map makers during the war. The gardens and walks in the grounds is pleasant. ...  more »
  • Our visit was a Sunday afternoon in February with a mix of sunny spells and ending in snow showers but this place is always good in any season for a walk around the woods etc. Going under foot was pre...  more »

  • If you like your political history this is a great place to visit. Original documentation is publicly on view, & in part of it, you feel as if you have been transported back to the 2nd world war. If not, I don't like to say it, but it is a bit boring. The house for me, is nothing spectacular, nor are the gardens compared to a lot of the National Trust places you can go to. But if you are interested, they hold different events throughout the year, one includes a 1940's theme event, where by you can dress up 1940's style, & they have music and singers to go with it all. That sounds worth a visit in itself.
  • Not the prettiest of country houses nor the grandest. The house's style is a tad austere urban and urbane for it's situation. A good deal of memorabilia, free parking and talks offset the significant entry price. Disraeli was probably the best of tories: introducing health and pollution improvements, free parks and museums - together with highlighting inequality and poverty. This reminder of humanitarian Conservatism should shake up current supporters of that ignoble Party.
  • Nice place. Good facilities and decent car park. Large picnic area and children play ground. 7/10
  • Lovely day out; whether you are a budding historian or simply want to take a stroll there is something here for everyone.
  • Very interesting house and garden. Excellent talk on it's wartime roll.
