The house and grounds were beautiful, and all incredibly well kept. The orangery restaurant was also delightful, if a little on the expensive side, but being able to eat overlooking the pond and lavender in such a peaceful setting made up for that.

Stuffed. Stuffed with riches, furniture, artworks in each room in profusion each of which would have been the highlight of an average house. Didn't get to the gardens, as were on a car rally and had not the time. But a house of riches. Strange ticket arrangements though, not at all apparent where one buys tickets. Popped into the Orangery... More

It was nice and cool in the house even though it was 35 degrees outside. Room attendants are knowledgeable and engaging and the house is full of interesting decoration and exhibits. It would be useful to have printed out information in rooms for those who don't have audio guide or house book

So said Elizabeth ! in the 16th century and today it stilll lives up to that promise. Tour includes the grand main rooms and the kitchen, which is amazing. Fantastic gardens and the restaurant cagfe is worth a visit particularly if you go when the roses are out.

We had been here several years ago to visit a craft faire and had not realised what we had missed. We have now joined the Historic Houses Association (HHA) and have now realised what we missed the first time. This visit was on 30 June 2015, and it was a nice sunny day. The school holidays had not started, so... More

This was a beautiful day spent in one of the landmark Elizabethan era houses - unfortunately it was a Friday and we couldn't go to see the state rooms - the rest of what we got to see was in itself a lovely day spent with nature - the garden of surprises is quite nicely done - the sculpture garden...

We are so lucky to have this stately home on our door step. I took my friend for her Birthday treat and we enjoyed wandering room to room followed by lunch in the orangery. We then took a walk around the garden of surprises and stopped by the lake for a rest. Beautiful house and beautiful grounds.
