  • One of our favourite NT places. There is a lot to see and do here and we didn't even get into the house! Our kids enjoyed playing tennis on the tennis court (short tennis bats and balls were provided) and we also thought the walled gardens were particularly good. The second hand book shop is one of the better ones with stock well arranged with plenty of room to browse around. Tea and cake in the cafe delicious as always.
  • Had a lovely day out here. There are acres of level grounds to walk plus a number of different gardens including a working kitchen garden. There is also the lovely house that was restored in the early 1920's using original features from other old houses. Usual national trust shop and tea rooms as well as a small number of other Awsomme craft shops including patchwork supplies and a silversmiths. Well worth a visit.
  • A good solid days out, the house is particularly good for me having a toddler, its being empty means I can walk around without constant fear of breakages, however if you enjoy rich interiors this is not the house for you to visit. The grounds contain a blend of garden rooms four or five in total, along with kitchen gardens, lawns and thin small woods, of all which leaves plenty of room for children to use up there abundant energy.
  • Multiple walled gardens each with unique planting. Kitchen garden fantastic at this time of year. Many different vistas. Interesting house but the gardens trump it. Charming tea rooms serving quality drinks and food.
  • Rather grand Englis country houses in a large garden and estate. Well managed by the National Trust. There are a group of skilled craftspeople who operate from cottage style workshops, including jewellery, woodworking, pottery and fabrics.
