Not as large as some sites we have visited but more than enough for 2-3 hours,... More

Whatever time of year a visit is very rewarding.It was a treat when we visited in October,there were so many Autumn colours everywhere.So many specimens of trees all reaching out to grab our attention. The Dahlia garden was looking its best with a huge selection of cultivars on display. The House was enchanting and gave us the impression that his... More

The house is beautiful and it has an amazingly eclectic collection of artworks, but the garden is rather disappointing. It is a very pleasant space but it lacks the special quality that marks a really great garden.

A delightful National Trust property with a very homely feel. Such a pleasure to see all the late owner's contents still there (which was a condition of leaving the property to the National Trust). Very knowledgeable room guides helped to make this one of our favourite National Trust properties visited to date.

The garden is extensive and well looked after. The house is very interesting with lovely NT restoration. A tasty lunch can be had in the restaurant as well.

What a great place to visit. Apart from going around the house with some fascinating items the grounds are extensive and in the good weather on the day we visited it was lovely to just sit and admire the view.. Apart from the rose garden and formal garden, we visited at the time the dahlias were in full bloom in... More

This quiet retreat near Lode in Cambridgeshire has extensive grounds and a cache of treasures in its rooms from all over the world. Clocks are a major feature but the star attraction has been away for repair for months now unfortunately (there is a video of it operating though). The grounds are delightful and so spacious it feels like a... More

We have been here twice this summer, the first time it was raining, yet our daughters had great fun thanks to the magnifiers they could borrow to inspects the woods. The second time we went it was part of a group of 9 adults, 5 children and a baby. Some of the adults didn't have children so we picked this... More

We enjoyed looking round this house. The grounds are extensive and we did not do them justice. We did however get to the water ill which was fascinating

This attraction not only includes a magnificent house built in the ruins of the abbey, but includes an array of formal gardens, country-side walks and a restored old water mill. A walk through formal paths and woods takes to the the restored and operational Lode Mill, which you are free to clamber the steep stairs to see the working areas.... More
