  • A lovely house and gardens. The house, while mostly empty, still has a lot of charm and character. The grounds are large and enjoyable to walk around. If it's sunny, take a picnic!
  • In common with many others I think, I visited here as a means of breaking up a long trip down the A303 to Cornwall. The place deserves so much more than a brief visit.

  • A not-to-miss stop on the way to the SW coast. Lots of space to walk or just sit and picnic. The painting exhibition (Holbein) was just spectacular.
  • Lovely house with beautiful grounds, lots of places to have a picnic
  • Been here loads of times nice gardens lovely house ,try and have a guided tour if you can you will learn loads about the history and paintings inside the house
