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

It was just as good as the first visit last year. The house and gardens are beautiful and the history is interesting. There is a large variety of plants for sale and as always the staff are very helpful. There was a large herd of deer in the parkthat just added to the day

Really pretty place with summer flowers garden to enjoy. Lovely setting and interesting rooms. Lady who did the Tudor clothes talk was engaging and informative - very well done. Cafe was pleasant and plenty of summer outdoor seating too but the wait for a couple of jacket potatoes was too long. Great plant sales on site and friendly staff. Excellent... More

This is a lovely place to visit for both the house and the gardens. Make sure you wander out towards the lake to see the deers and various birds - have your camera at the ready. The house has several rooms on view and the guides are very knowledgable and ready to answer your questions. There is a nice cafe... More

The day my wife and I visited, the house was closed and the temperature was in the eighties which made walking around in the grounds a little uncomfortable. One of the gardeners was really helpful by going off and printing a grounds walk off for us. What we did see was fine enough but we were not as impressed as... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this lovely house. The beautiful day helped no doubt but the house and grounds looked lovely . Much of interest to see and knowledgeable guides in each room. It became busy but we were there early and when we were ready for a drink we simply walked in the grounds until the restaurant became less... More

We visited on a very warm sunny day, which, of course, makes everything better!! We are NT members, so entrance costs us nothing. The house is huge, but not very many rooms are open to the public. However, those that are, are simply delightful. No audio guide, which is a shame, but guides in each room to give greater detail.... More

Delightful place to visit, house is very impressive, set in lovely countryside. Guides very pleasant and helpful, a really nice day out. If you are visiting here on a Saturday, you might want to take in Chedhams Yard a couple of miles down the road as well.

This house is full of wonderful masterpieces of furniture and décor and art. The guides are very helpful and informative. It has been altered during its long life but still maintains the look of a Tudor Manor. Extensive grounds and gardens made for walking and exploring. Well worth a visit.
