This was a lovely hour or so. Refreshingly different to the National Trust. Garden only open on the day we visited as the House was closed but well worth the £2.50p.p. in the honesty box. We visited in May so a lovely season.

Check opening times before setting out to find this peaceful family home- it is not often open! We visited in spring and the bluebells were lovely: I can't comment on what the gardens would be like later in the year. (To be honest, I may...More

The tour of the house was conducted by the lady owner who was informative and amusing about the history of the house, its past residents and various artefacts within it. It is fairly small but as one who can get bored with walking round stately...More

Have visited several times and very worthwhile if you're in the area and like gardens. This is not a National Trust Stately Home experience. It is much less commercial. The Tudor house/home (with Georgian extensions) is still owned by the family and is full of...More
