Their stories are told throughout the house by their portraits, the objects they collected from around the world and the design influence they had on the house and parkland. See how Mary Elizabeth Lucy remodeled the house in Victorian times. The gardens include a formal parterre, woodland walk and the wider parkland (inspired by 'Capability' Brown), which offer walks with picturesque views across the River Avon. A herd of fallow deer has been in the park since Tudor times. « less

Unfortunately it was drizzling when we went but the kids still had a good time doing their pumpkin trail and winning one each at the end. It must be great to visit in the summer as the park is very big and enables a good wander.

Lovely grounds and beautiful house, some of the woodwork and furniture is breath-taking, also so is the plasterwork. The coaches in the Stables are amazing. Loved walking around and seeing the Deer, however part of the park is closed off at certain times of the year and think you should be told this before you pay to go in, as... More

The House is lovely and well interpreted, with a lively and interesting talk as we arrived. The cafe was completely overwhelmed by the numbers of visitors, though it wasn't full.Tables weren't cleared, inside or out. We had to clear the tables, queue for food, then get cutlery, milk, crockery and napkins. I felt as though I worked there by the... More

I forgot to put this beautiful house on Trip Advisor when we visited it in September this year. The house is Elizabethan/Tudor and Shakespeare, who knew the house, is alleged to have been caught poaching the estate deer! The history is absorbing , with much to see in the house and the parkland itself It is in the care of... More

Free parking for all. Orangery restaurant lovely setting (due a revamp inside Nov 2014). House easy to navigate and plenty of knowledgeable volunteers. Carriages very interesting-a very informative volunteer guided us around them including into the locked tack room. Be sure to read about the Lucy's Grand Tour. The biggest 'garden centre' I've seen at a national trust- so much... More

We stopped by on a cold, wet Autumn day shortly after opening time so we had no problems parking. Coming out of the shop we were confronted by the best display of pumpkins and gourds I've ever seen. We declined the offer of a buggy ride and walked up the long drive to the gatehouse where a group of us... More
