The gardens are beautiful but you might wish to apply insect repellent before you leave the car. We took the tour of the house. It lasted about 50 minutes and was interesting but there dont appear to be facilities for those with additional mobility needs -probably because this house is a lived in home. The exhibits are a mixture of... More

Has a very bizarre and fascinating history and taking the guided tour around the house is recommended. The walled garden is very good and worth walking around.

Beautiful home and gardens. Total credit to the family and gardener. Great value for money (£10 each for house tour and gardens). Gardens absolutely stunning so much effort put into them. House tours full of family information and wee stories. Even though house is really impressive it is totally a family home and this is reflected throughout the tour. Well... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the pottery festival. Arrived early and there was a well organised car park, delightful pottery exhibition layout and the atmosphere perfectly enhanced by the "Ragtime Rascals" musical trio. The historical house and gardens were superb and we'll be returning one fine day.

Had a lovely half day here, we came here so our dog could come too and he was quite welcome in the grounds. The garden was lovely, gave me lots of ideas for colour and plant combinations. The kids enjoyed running around. The house is by guided tour only and quite interesting, I'm glad I got the leaflet to read... More

Arboretum is impressive and well labelled. Gardens wonderful in spring. Gardens, grounds and cafe are dog friendly. Ongoing restoration of extensive grounds promises great things.

The house looks interesting but we concentrated on the gardens, which were also interesting and open separately from the house if required. The tearoom is good for light lunches and excellent cakes, with friendly and welcoming staff.

We went here as there was a plant and food fair. We joined a walk and talk by the gardener which was very interesting. We did not have time to visit the house or walk the woods so need to go back. The salads we had in the tea room were excellent and look out for the amazing gates, we... More
