We visited this hidden gem in The Cotswolds in a Saturday afternoon. It has a long fir about 400-year old family history. At opening times it's easy to get the tickets at the office. Inside kind and well-prepared staff members show round in the rooms...More

Very pleasant gardens to walk around, even have a game of croquet (weather permitting). Entry to the house is in timed slots to stop overcrowding ,which makes it better for viewing. Beware though the car park is a reasonable walk away across a grass field.

One of the best NT houses I have visited. Unspoilt, preserving its true character as it existed when it was handed over to the NT. Refreshing not to have a cafe and/or a gift shop. One for the true conservation connoisseurs.

Derelict country house as advertised. But it was even worse than expected. Not nice; there are much better places to visit. You cannot be proud of a "romantice decline" as written by the National Trust.

Was a wee bit disappointed at the actual house, the rooms seemed a bit sparse with not that much to view. Found the staff and guides, friendly with lots of good information. The grounds I didn't find to be fantastic at all, trees, hedges, lawns,...More

I visited the house and gardens today and found it fascinating. For me the decay works and for once it was good to walk around a NT house that has been virtually architecturally unspoilt since it was first built. I personally wouldn't want a Cafe...More
