  • Really enjoyed walking around the gardens and the house. Would recommend eating elsewhere though as the food was over priced and definitely not worth the price.  more »
  • Visited here with my mom. It is a great historical site to visit if traveling with someone with limited mobility. One of the few sites we visited that didn't have a lot of steps.  more »
  • Plenty to see in this fascinating buiding. Large National Trust tea rooms and shop. Lots to do inside and outside.  more »
