Plenty of things for children to do and take part in and staff that are helpful,friendly and are interactive with children which is something that can't always be said about national trust places.

This beautiful house took me by surprise.the interior was not what I expected.. It was so much better.the guides were very knowledgable and only too happy to share that knowledge. The gardens are also a very peaceful place to wander in,and to finish off your day visit the tea rooms for a nice cuppa.

Fabulous Pre-Raphelite paintings, brass and copper objects and fitments by Benson and tiles by de Morgan. There are volunteers in most of the rooms who are very knowledgable and very friendly. This is probably our favourite house to visit in the... More

A very enjoyable day out, a very good tea room, lots of people all around the Manor house to help with any enquiries and with anecdotes about the people who have lived there and about the different rooms on the property, we shall visit again when the weather is a little warmer and the gardens are at their best.

A superb property to visit. Steeped in local history and marvelous collections explained in detail by highly knowledgable volunteer guides. Attractive gardens compliment the buildings. A most enjoyable visit.

We visited on a showery May morning and despite the weather thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The walks through the gardens were amazing, for the gardeners reading this do look out for the Handkerchief Tree and the Petasites down on an island in the lake. Masses of Camassia hiding amongst the rhododendrons, a very simple,calm,peaceful garden with the amazing backdrop of the... More
