An outstanding day out, full of history, adventure and wonderment. A well thought out place in a majestic setting. Stunning architecture and interiors. The grounds are amazing, with imposing trees and beautiful streams. Loved visiting the generator house.

As far as I know you can take dogs in the grounds - you may be best having a look on their website :-)

Sincere apologies I did not get round to answering your question. I trust you found the answer anyway. All sites have details listed on the National Trust website for opening times, prices etc.
