  • The house partially open, having been a conference centre, and needs work. However, the gardens, especially the walled ones, are a room by room delight of flowers, fruit, vegetables, Italianate etc. F...  more »
  • The most beautiful place. It is my favourite :-). The staff are lovely and the coffee is fantastic. I visit often and every time there is something new to see. The handkerchief tree is a spectacular sight. The gardens are colourful and very aesthetically pleasing. You can walk or relax and enjoy the view.
  • First trip out using our new National Trust membership and what a lovely venue we chose. Lovely gardens, really friendly and knowledgeable staff. And don't forget to try the gorgeous Welsh cakes in the cafe!
  • Lovely little spot that has something for everyone. The actual gardens are very varied, with paths shooting off in every direction, great for exploring! Very grand views and the botanical aspects were beautiful. They even have a large cacti/succulent greenhouse. There's a fair amount of social history spots too, which is the part I really enjoy. Lots to learn about the occupants of the manor over the years. I did find the admission price steep compared to other similar locations. The manor is very much in a state of repair and a tad bare, though there's plenty of information advising the previous and current restoration taking place, which I hope explains the dear entry fee (in which case, excusable) Will try and come back in the height of Summer, as I imagine the landscape would've changed considerably during the season :)
  • Good for a dry day, there's not much to do if it's raining. As it was a bank holiday when we visited we were able to play croquet which the children really enjoyed. It's quite expensive to get in.
  • Great place for families young & old, beautiful house and Gardens well worth a day out visiting this hidden gem.
