The topiary garden was absolutely stunning with lovely flower beds and extensive areas around it, all in excellent condition and superbly maintained. The interior of the house is also not to be missed. The whole visit including lunch in the restaurant was delightful and you should not miss it if you are in the area!

The topiary gardens are amazing, we spent an hour wandering round them with a new delight at each turn. There are guided tours of the garden but we were not able to take one due to lack of time. The house is interesting and it was very interesting to see a house that has been lived in by the same... More

Took my elderly father to levels hall. I hadn't been here for a vey long time!!!! From what I remember it was better , the gardens are a must see. Those gardeners must work so hard because when you see the topiary it really is just an amazing sight.The gardens are set out so you can get around easily and... More

We could only visit the garden. The hall was out of bounds for my wife's walker, but we ticked off another item on our bucket list. Possibly chose the wrong thing to eat in the eatery, can't have everything.

Did not go into the house but went round the gardens and they are amazing. A small area for children tucked away in a corner but would keep them occupied for half an hour or so. Very knowledgeable and friendly chap taking the money. Well worth a visit.

Spent a fascinating few hours in glorious sunshine in the house and gardens with my wife and her aged parents on Thursday 14th May. An amazing historical journey with really helpful stewards and an extremely knowledgable garden guide. Well worth a visit, but check for opening times as the family still live in the house.

Wow, wow, wow!!! A topiary lovers dream. The scale of some quite breathtaking. The red tulips around the fruit trees in the orchard a lovely feature. Lots of places to sit and take in the views. Fabulously stocked shop & unusual tearoom. The only downside was some of the staff. The 2 ladies in the shop have obviously never worked... More

What an amazing gem with so much to see both in the house and the garden. There was a warmth about the house which was filled with a wealth of history and plenty of large print literature around to read about the various contents. The topiary in the garden is amazing and certainly merits a visit on its own but... More

Really lovely gardens, best topiary I've seen. Lovely warm spring day and beautiful gardens to walk around. The hall was really interesting and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We had a cuppa and hot sausage roll, which was yummy to. Well worth a visit.

Both house and gardens are delightful in their own way. Just AMAZING topiary in the gardens (including a little elephant), so many shapes and unique designs. The house has interesting elements, all in all had a lovely couple of hours mooching around. There is a picnic area just beyond the entrance...
