  • I enjoyed my walk around the grounds of this house and I enjoyed strolling round its rooms, too. I was a little disappointed that the furnishings weren't, on the whole, originally from the building but that is not the fault of the National Trust! The little free guide was quite informative - we would never have found the ice house without it! A great place to visit - there were lots of dog walkers, picnicking families and strolling couples. Nice place.
  • Absolutely beautiful, very helpful guides and a friendly atmosphere. Good disabled access and all round lovely place. Filming of wolfhall took place here and it was exciting to get a feel for that!
  • Beautiful historic house and gardens (used as set for Wolf Hall). Not too large but some gems (long gallery, orangery, pavilions, planting and vistas). Interesting external carvings in local dark honey coloured stone. Pleasant cafe.
  • Great house and gardens, plenty to do and see. Lovely grounds, plenty of room for the kids to let off some steam. Nice little play area too. Which is rare on some of these NT places.
  • A great place to visit, with fantastic gardens and places for kids to play. The cafe is also very good.
