This place is very airy and clean. You do not feel claustrophobic in the building. The room stewards are very helpful and knowledgable. Not a huge house but certainly designed to impress. History of how the place was used as Hospital looking after wounded serviceman is very interesting. The restaurant and shop situated "under" the house are not to be... More

Interesting palladian style property with some fine ceramics (we particularly liked the Harlequins..). The gardens are small but very picturesque. A light lunch in the undervault cafe is recommended too.

This was our first visit to this property and we thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a friendly welcome at the visitor reception and an even friendlier one on arrival at the house. The entrance hall is superb with its marble fireplaces and exquisite ceiling, and so are the collections of porcelain (the monkey orchestra in particular) and paintings (we were... More

Despite the very rainy weather, we were able to enjoy a lovely visit around the house. It was not overly large, which is actually good, as some of the houses you visit take ages and ages to get around. I wish the weather had been nicer so that we might have been able to walk around the grounds. However, what... More

The house was built in the 1720s for the Onslow family and generations of their family have lived there. Unfortunately the 6th Earl of Onslow was struggling to maintain it and his Aunt Lady Iveagh, who used to live there, bought the house from him in 1956 and gave it to the National Trust along with money towards maintenance. Hannah... More

Last time we visited here our visit was cut short as we went to buy a puppy! We finally came back a year later and were not disappointed. The house is lovely, as is the grounds. The museum on the war was just outstanding.

Lovely place to visit with nice grounds. Not huge as I understand the family still privately own the majority. A pretty Dutch garden and Maori meeting house, grotto and playground for the children. The house has interesting rooms with plenty of information sheets. There is a New Zealand collection which unfortunately wasn't open when we were there due to volunteer... More

Clandon is a smaller National Trust property and as other reviewers have said, it is not a destination to spend the whole day there but if it is not too far out of your way, worth a trip. The house itself is quite interesting and there are a fair number of rooms to look around. I have to say that... More

We came across Clandon Park whilst travelling to another NT property, and without plans, found it to be ideal for a couple of hours, it's not the biggest NT property. Clandon Park is easy to find via the A247 from either the A3 or A25. The site has plenty of free parking and as NT members I am not aware... More
