  • Another stunning NT property - this part of the country seems to have more than its fair share! An amazing house with lots to see, helpful staff and a great children's trail. The restaurant is pretty good too! Another to add to your to-do list!
  • A great place to visit. Wonderful house and gardens. Plenty of space for the kids to run around. The cafe serves some really great good. The house itself is lovely and really interesting to look around.
  • The house is very interesting inside but leave plenty of time if you are doing the kids trail. The gardens are lovely but not a lot to interest older children. The cafe serves nice cake but can be busy and only has a small inside seating area. Nice day out but not really for very young children.
  • Intresting house and contents ; especially liked the National Portrait Gallery's display of pictures relevant to the the house's own time period. Gardens were original in some features, but not outstanding. The courtyard cafe was good for menu and location.
  • Very beautiful and peaceful place. Nicely spent time walking true the garden and all house. People who works in there are very friendly and helpful. Tasty cakes and sandwiches in the coffee shop. ;-)
