  • An excellent National Trust House and Gardens, good parking close to entrance with buggy service for the elderly or those with difficulty walking. excellent tearoom restaurant over looking kids play park. A short stroll to the house that has ground floor restoration competed. Lots of interesting and well though out features inside. The gardens are large and beautiful with well kept enthusiastic staff maintaining them. There is work underway to built a large kids play area (check progress) We have visited lots of National Trust sites and this one is up there with the best.
  • Now taken over by the National Trust much work has been done to improve the garden and house. There is a new visitor's center, new restaurant, new greenhouse and better signage. There are play areas for kids at the entrance and in the wild areas. The whole feeling is that much more time and money is being put into it and this is reflected in a much better visitor experience than previously.
  • Amazing place, family friendly with a kid's park at the entrance. Plenty to see, inside the house and outside, picnic tables available and very safe place for the kids to run around. Will definitely go back soon.
  • Beautiful but a work in progress. They are developing the grounds and restoring the house but you wouldn't know it. The variety of gardens and vistas were fabulous. I will go again if in the neighbourhood.
  • Star gardens of South Wales. Beautiful vistas. Delightful garden rooms. House now accessible and very interesting. Woodland contains many unusual species of très.
