This is an excellent attraction. I suggest you allow at least 1.5 to 2 hours for the house and another hour or two for the gardens. You could spend more time in the gardens if you are particularly interested. The guides were all very well informed and helpful.

We were on our way back home from Cornwall when we decided to call in for a brief visit to this property. Well, what can I say?!!!! Am so glad I did. It is without question the best NT property I have visited. The rooms (and there are many!) were all beautifully presented as if the family had just gone... More

This a delightful house set in a wonderful estate with lovely gardens. The house is well dressed (better than some National Trust properties in that you could beleive this house has been lived in). There is also a good cafe. Tip: it's a long walk in so use the buggy service if mobility is an issue.

This was one of the best houses we have visited and we have been to many. The house has a warm friendly feeling to it and the staff are astounding in their knowledge of the history of both the house and family who lived there. The gardens are beautiful and ooze peace and tranquility. There is transport to the house... More

Well worth a visit, this National Trust property stands in huge well kept gardens and has about 50 rooms to explore. It is beautifully kept and full of history. All the volunteer staff are knowledgeable and friendly and happy to answer your questions. Allow at least half a day to visit, you won't be disappointed. Cafe is good for lunches.

On arrival there is a good national trust tearoom right by the carpark serving a good selection of cakes and snacks. Entry to the house is about a 5 minute walk and there is a golf buggy service for those who find this too much. The house is large and sits in formal gardens which again are surrounded by acres...

Considering that a large part of the building had a vicious firestorm from the kitchen, distroying among other things the liberary, the rebuilding in the 18-19th Century had been a great success. Certainly a Manor-House worth visiting, and the Gardens in Spring and Summer are beautiful! Many films had this house as a backgroud
