I am not a great fan of visiting historic houses but went along with my wife. Although the home of late prime minister Benjamin Disraeli, it lacks the ostentation of many National Trust houses - and I liked that. It was built as a family home rather than a mansion. A great house to visit and some excellent exhibits.

Good exhibition of documents and artefacts around the house. The experienced and interesting room stewards added to the visit. Lovely gardens and walking areas especially in the summer.

Visited the Manor and was fascinated by the information surrounding the life and times of Benjamin Disraeli. The layout of the house was simple to follow and not too expansive so a tour of the house was easy. The bonus was the map room in the cellars utilised in World War II and unknown to the general public for years... More

It was good to find an NT property open in February. Driveway up is very steep, good clutch control required! Non slip shoes an idea too although golf buggy will transport you to house if mobility an issue. Give the stable cafe a miss if you want to sit for coffee as appears unheated at this time of year, theres... More

Lovely surrounding they are currently do soe work perhaps extending the gardens for summer. The tea room is a little expensive and they had moved it to the main manor as the normal tea rooms don't usually open until March but by popular demand they managed to make an alternative...all in all lively morning.

The building is well worth a visit in view of the part it has played in this Countries' fate unto the second world war. It is surrounded by acres of woodland crossed by many (sometimes muddy) paths. Much of the area involves steep climbs which are rewarded with spectacular views. The area is also accessable by car and has a... More

This was the home of Benjamin Disraeli Queen Victoria's favourite Prime Minister, and as such the house reflects this. It is not large, but it is very interesting, well furnished and decorated of the time with knowledgeable NT volunteers to answer questions. What isn't widely known is that it was the secret HQ of mapping in WW2, and there is... More
