The history and fabric of the hall are very interesting and the volunteer guides knowledgeable and friendly. It is an enormous old pile and seemed to go on for ever. The servants' quarters are on view by contrast to the family's accommodation. There are some real treasures to be seen. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained.

We had a guided taster tour round the house about 45 minutes long. Then returned to see rest afterwards when the full house opened at 1pm. There are... More

Visited on a lovely warm sunny day. From the minuite we got there noticed there was a new visitor centre with gift shop. The welcome was warm and friendly. We decided to go on the 12.00 noon taster tour. So glad we did as the lady guide was excellent. We then visited the whole house after our picnic. The room... More

A beautiful old English house one of the nicest English Heritage houses I have been to, while there it had a lot of World War 1 and 11 memorabilia which was very interesting, also during the war troops were stationed there, the staff were very knowledgeable and were able to answer questions. The gardens were really lovely as well.

We visited yesterday and was really surprised at how large the house is. We think this is one of the better English heritage properties and definitely worth a visit. Lots of rooms to view with all original furniture and also servants quarters.Free Quiz sheets for the children. The church was also open to visitors for the last time this year... More

So we've visited this lovely English Heritage hall & it's gardens a few times now & we love it but every time I do comment to the great team there that its such a shame that the tea rooms main counter area isn't that little bit bigger to accommodate the visitor numbers they attract - the staff are fabulous, food...
