Lovely day out, nice walk around the gardens. There is a longer walk but is unsuitable for a pram, so will have to do that one another time. The cafe was nice. A little limited but adequate for tea and cake after a nice walk.

Was disappointed at how small considering the entry price but what there was, was very good. Well kept gardens. House good for history buffs. Food in cafe good. Only need an hour.

This is a lovely old house with interesting gardens and pleasant parkland with various walks. However it does seen a bit over-regulated with an abundance of signs, often of a negative type. Unfortunately this seems to have rubbed off onto the staff as we were...More

Charming old manor house donated lock, stock and barrel to the National Trust by the previous owner Sir William Jenner in 1948. This means it is packed with furniture, pictures, ornaments etc so there is a fair bit to see. The gardens are beautiful and...More

This is a pleasant small property for those who are able bodied and can walk. Unfortunately it is not so good for anyone using a small wheeled mobility scooter. We made a mistake of entering the property from the middle of the car park having...More

I am not aware that you can pre-book but I am sure that if you popped in when you arrived and asked for a table at a certain time they would be obliging. If you are taking a party of people that may be more difficult as it... More
