We were recommended this national trust site by family but I’m afraid their experience seems very different. Gardens were closed due to tree felling and had we not had national trust membership would have felt a little cheated paying an expensive entry fee. With such...More

Fantastic place and very interesting the only thing I would say is its not for anyone with mobility issues as the lower level and upstairs are not accessible and I feel there should be a reduction of charges to reflect this, just advising there are...More

This was our 2nd visit here, and because it was autumn rather than the beginning of summer, it was a totally different experience - but just as magical. The grounds are an absolute joy...so much to see. If you can walk or drive round the...More

Personally I would say that this is really not best visited in the rain. The gardens and walks are extensive and unless you do not mind getting wet will be bleak. There are also lots of stone steps which if wet will... More
