I love this house and the grounds. It’s not the normal National Trust premises. It’s not about the history more the Art Deco elegance. We fell in love with the place...go visit you won’t be disappointed

As always, the quality is good with the National Trust. The house is purpose built for the D'Oyle Cart family and is predominantly Art Deco.
