  • We only visited the grounds so cannot speak for the inside of the Hall. Covid 19 procedures are in place and we found them to be well observed. You can take your dog round all of the grounds and...  more »

  • I spent a lovely afternoon here. The house is steeped in history. It's definitely worth going on the guided tour, you learn so much about the house and the history of the owners and the land. Fabulous grounds. Nice to see sheep and cows grazing in the fields. We were lucky to have gone on a day when there was a fayre, so there was a band playing and a lovely atmosphere with people sat on deckchairs enjoying the music and good weather. Would recommend this as a good day out. Food and drinks available, and children can dress up and play here too, so great for families.
  • Had a wonderful time here and could not believe how many rooms that are open for the public to see. There is a member of staff in most rooms to help with any questions you may have and they interacted with the kids to. Would definitely recommend this place to spend a day.
  • Beautiful stately home with evert artifact genuine and authentic, belonging to the long line of Constable family who lived there. So many awesome things to see, with knowledgeable and friendly guides aplenty. Lovely tearoom and grounds too.
  • Beautiful house in lovely grounds. Dogs welcome on leads anywhere around the grounds & parkland. The house is full of interest & volunteer guides are very knowledgeable. Some good bits for children, young ones love the whale & the coach play area. Tha cafe serves good lunches/afternoon teas!
  • Lovely old country house. Went to look at the craft fair. Lots of super local crafts on display. Looking forward to seeing the first ever Flower Festival being held there next weekend. Should be brilliant. Miss Elle's Design Florist will be there also.
