Not quite a time capsule but well done to English heritage, this year they have added a excellent world war 1 exibition that runs through all rooms and a special exhibition room . This especially this year is very interesting to tie in with the use of the house . The gardens are a delight

This is a wonderful place to spend the day, a trip around the house is very interesting, there is a cafe that has some lovely drinks and food but I think they are is a bit pricey. The gardens are beautiful and are amazing to walk around. The place is run by volunteers and they do a brilliant job. It... More

This was not fully open when we visited in the spring, but the gardens looked lovely with a carpet of snowdrops. We had access to the kitchens and will visit again to see the rest of the property.

First of all - the gardens - absolutely superb - worth visiting for these alone. Wonderful variation of shrubs and greenery, excellent roses, superb trees etc. You set out to represent the gardens as they were in their heyday, and you have succeeded. But the house. I understand your philosophy of presenting it as it was left, but of that... More

My first visit to this amazing piece of history today. English Heritage have carried out het bare minimum works to present this hall to visitors without restoring it to its hey day. this has the worthwhile pleasing effect of presenting social history, from a status symbol of the landed class, to the post - war demise of the class system....

Not the usual English Heritage building...more used to ruins!! This was a great building, conserved rather than restored so the house was quite 'dark'. However, we felt that this was a fantastic way of presenting the hall. You could see so many rooms that you really got to know the context of the house....great value. And then...the gardens!!! Absolutely outstanding.... More
