The National Trust properties do not disappoint. The house and garden are wonderful. The hedges have an unusual shape that are rather delightful to view. A breath-taking glass greenhouse is on the grounds, asd well.

Enjoyed an interesting visit to this historic house in Dorset. Loved the knowledge of the room attendants as made it very real. Cafe was ok for lunch but small as unable to sit outside.

Nice day out, gardens well worth seeing. Staff inside the house very friendly and helpful. Rooms very nice. We did the guided tour around the outside of the house which was enjoyable, but not sure that the information given was correct. Would go back.
