Whilst the entry price is less than some other National Trust properties, there really isn't much to see and as such doesn't represent good value. Only 3 downstairs rooms, the hall and entrance room are open and whilst it appears that upstairs rooms are beckoning, none are open making the uphill trip a waste of time. The grounds are nicely...

We noted the hall is only open from 2pm til 5pm and travelled north of Banbury expecting a couple of hours of interest as we have in most other NT properties. Car park is nicely placed next to the hall so has easy access for those who find walking difficult. Externally the building is reasonably large and still occupied by...

Really nice small NT property that is well worth a visit. Only a few rooms open as the family still live here but quite fascinating and very informative guides. Great views from the gardens with nice walks.

I have not visited the house in recently. However, the walk around Farnborough Pool is beautiful. On a hot day walking under the canopy in dappled shade is beautiful. Why not share a picnic by the waters edge and feed the ducks a great free day out with the children.

The hall is only open Wednesdays and Saturdays and there are only four rooms and a stairway to view.Having said that the staff are very friendly and the plasterwork is brilliant.The grounds are pleasant but not extensive

PLEASE ALSO SEE THE REVIEWS UNDER FARNBOROUGH HALL, FARNBOROUGH A lovely house, very much a family home. Delightful gardens with terrific views. Excellent guides who even offered us a lift back to our narrowboat as it was quite a long walk! On Weds and Sat there is tea and cakes in the village hall, again well worth a visit.

We travelled quite far to visit Farnborough Hall for a nice afternoon out. Like many people nowadays we only carry a debit card and indeed almost everywhere takes card payments and we didn't think that the National Trust would be any different. However, when I went to pay the lady seemed confused and didn't really seem to know what a...

This is one of the worst national trust houses we have visited three boring rooms and one of the rudest guides I have ever meet.if your paying on the day it's not worth the money , members don't travel more than 20 miles.Hi light of the trip the village pub.

Had a nice afternoon nosing around Farnborough Hall. Because it's still a family home, there are only 3 rooms open - a five minute skip through, so not really worth the entrance fee. The gardens however are stunning, and certainly worth a walk around. There's no tea room on site, but the Farnborough village hall does a fabulous slice of...

Takes you back 400 years. Beautifully preserved perfect example of an Englsh classic country house - still cared for by the family that built and originally furnished it in what must be one of the Trust's more successful relationships. Furniture and art collected over the years includes a series of marble busts of Emperors (or Popes?) brought back from Italy...
