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.

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.

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. ;-)

Nice grounds to wander around, impressive house with a great portrait gallery. Also has a good cafe courtyard area. Well worth a visit!
