  • Lovely time of year to visit the garden with amazing flowers on display. The garden is very good to relax in with stunning views across Kent and Surrey. Usual NT cafe and toilet facilities. The house is interesting with insight into the life of one of our great leaders.
  • Wonderful home of Churchill preserved by the National Trust. A great deal of his own art on display alongside other historical artefacts. Magnificent gardens too. Brilliant tea room for refreshments!
  • Very nice grounds and lovely house. Good background info on Churchill too. We were recommended to go back to see the view of the Weald of Kent in the summer and we will.
  • A great place to spend the day the house isn't that big but the rooms that you can go in have a lot of original works on display. The gardens are beautiful with lovely walks
  • I had an excellent time here. Knowledgeable staff all about, great house tour and gardens. Easter activities during this visit, yet not overly crowded.
