The house feels more like a real home that a stately home: it is warm and inviting. The grounds are very extensive and there is something to be seen in every month of the year. Whether you want wild places or formal gardens, there is something here for everyone. Even when busy you can still find quiet parts.

Amazing. gardens all year round. The Winter Garden is spectacular now with carpets of snowdrops and sweet smelling box. Hoe Fen is an attractive and stimulating environment for children. Highly recommended at all times of the year.

Very spacious grounds and easy walking paths. The snow drops were just coming out and were beautiful. A pot of Yorkshire Tea and cake in the Cafe to finish. A lovely afternoon

I am a regular visitor to this place, and visit at least 5-6 times in a year. Apart from the house, the grounds are vast and offer great place to lounge and have a picnic. There are formal gardens that look best in the summer, winter gardens that come into their own when everything else has withered. There are landscaped... More

Very well laid out with excellent parking facilities. The grounds are very picturesque with lots to see and explore. The shop and cafe are rather expensive though.

We waited for a dry sunny day to visit the site for the second time. We went for the first time last year in March, too late to see the snowdrops but very enjoyable nonetheless. We were at the start of the snowdrop season this year so didn't see a vast amount of blooms but had a very pleasant walk... More

A gorgeous setting and a favourite place to visit with the family. Lovely food, friendly assistants. The floor is very muddy in the restaurant though but it would take a lot to keep on top of this at certain times of the year!

Visit in late January-February to see the astonishing displays of snowdrops, of every possible variety. Another attraction in the grounds is the working watermill. Attractive winter garden. Curious statuary. House stuffed with obsessive collections.

The National Trust property has gardens that are constantly changing with the seasons, you can go there every other week and see a very different garden. From wideopen spaces, avenues of trees, the fantastic herbaceous boarder, the mill and rose garden are all worth a visit. If you have time the house is also well worth a visit, I found... More
