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

The manor is interesting & the guides full of information. The cafe serves the most delicious meals & sandwiches & the waiting time for hot meals almost nil. Highlight for me was the walk around the park & seeing so many magnificent oaks & other tree species, so many in their prime. Well done, NT!

We visited this property twice last year and as we were back in the area we had another visit. The house is one of my favourite National Trust properties. Once you enter the house you are in a large entrance hall with a fantastic large table in the middle and lots of artworks on the wall. You then go into... More

We were part of a party of 42 on our way to Scotland and this visit was to give the coach driver a break and for us to start our holiday in style. We enjoyed our tour of the house and found the room guides helpful and informative. The house, although dating from 1558, is decorated in a showy Victorian... More

Visited here recently and we really enjoyed our walk around the house & gardens. Lots of information to read which was great. We spent around 2-3 hours here so it is perfect for an afternoon out. The house is magnificent and the gardens are clearly well looked after.

We were travelling through here and stopped off. It far exceeded expectation as it was a lovely sunny day and I would have liked to have explored more of the grounds if time had allowed. The National Trust are very good at considering families activities these days and there was a free spot the fawn game around the house to... More

This lovely old building is set in extensive beautifully kept grounds. Plenty to see and do and the deer are fantastic to watch. Not over-priced and well worth the money. The Victorian laundry room and kitchens are very atmospheric. Worth a visit!!

There's a lot to say about this National Trust property: - stroll through the park full of deer and Jacob sheep - study the interesting coaches in the annex building and read the fascinating story of the Lucy family's one-year coach trip around Europe in the 19th century - enjoy the beautiful flower terrace behind the house and the river...

This smallish property is a delight to visit. The buildings are located close to each other and the external view of the main house as you walk down the drive is stunning. The gardens are well planted and the grounds extensive. The food in the Resturant was excellent, check out the size of the lamb chops!

We have visited this National Trust property several times over the last 25 years, the most recent (bar this) in April last year (on our way to the Shakespeare Theatre). I visited it on my own the other day and, having limited time (after a good cup of coffee and cake) and better weather than the last time decided to... More

It has a large car park where you can find space for a picnic, and is next to the garden centre. The National Trust helpers are very friendly, there are some lovely walks around the grounds and plenty of restaurant facilities and toilets around the park. The history inside the hall is amazing and bought to life by some great... More
