The Hall is interesting especially the servants quarters which are imaginatively presented and full of information. The gardens are very much a work in progress and a guided tour is needed to appreciate what they are trying to achieve. Perhaps a bit more tidying up...More

House was beautiful and staff enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Below stairs section was really interesting. Food in the cafe was really fresh and I thought reasonably priced. Tray bake was delicious! Gardens were lovely too, particularly the walled garden.

We visited after seeing an article in the press on dog friendly days out. Very friendly and informative staff. We spent 2 1/2 hours wandering around the gardens. Dogs are not allowed in the hall but there is an area of the tea room they...More
