Gem of a place for a walk on a nice day. Lots of space, lovely gardens. In a lot of ways a high end park. The usual National Trust "fayre" is available, a decent standard but the usual slightly cheeky prices - sometimes suffering from serving efficiency problems. They should at least start giving NT members a token discount on... More

As NT members it's free to get in , if not its 7.95 per adult, for what is basically a nice area to walk around with some ruins and cafes.

Well worth a visit, lovely outdoor/rural walks nestled in crawling countryside. Also charms a very nice NT tea/coffee shop plus large children's play area. Can suggest a well worthwhile visit if a National Trust member.

Great area for an afternoons walk and dog friendly. The grounds of the site are well looked after with the Gardeners/groundsmen keeping on top of the hard work they carry out all year round. The cafe was ok a little on the steep side with the 'mini' (tiny) mince pies weighing in at a £1.20 each. I think these days... More

Poor vague service could be excuse if they were busy when we visited, but they weren't. After first being told that toasties weren't available till... More

Been before and will come back again, with or without the grandchildren. These are beautiful grounds - - fabulous for walking in if you are an adult - but also great play areas for the kids.
