  • This is an all day visit, even then if you visit the town that could add another half day. Especially if you have lunch at a local restaurant. The house has many interesting artifacts from its long history, ranging from oil paintings and statues, to general items used by the servants when the house had staff. All in all a very good place to spend a day. National trust site. Good parking.
  • Fantastic place to come with the family, very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful grounds with walks by the lake and the deer park. Very good toilet facilities and cafe. Loved going round the house and viewing the paintings especially finding out my youngest was able to explain the Macbeth painting in detail. The house offers a car service for those unable to walk far from their car to the house.
  • You'll need to set aside a bare minimum of 2 hours here and likely to spend an average of 4hours total if you wish to enjoy the remarkable grounds. A true wealth of paintings, glorious trees and worth the cost of entry.
  • This wonderful place pretty much has it all. Beautiful gardens, views, and a house full of fabulous things. Ideal for families - great for picnics and walks. Indoor and outdoor activities. No pictures allowed inside.
  • The staff on the day were really rude. We didn't get given an option to gift aid or not it was just assumed that we would. The staff were rude when they told the person I was with to take off their bag without a please, just an unpleasant look like it was common sense to take your bag off inside the house itself. The only saving grace is that the place has deer who were more pleasant than the people I was giving money too. Shame really and I won't be recommending this place.
