We enjoyed our afternoon trip. It was very busy as one should expect on a Bank Holiday afternoon. This was a slightly different property to many of those we have visited that belong to the National Trust. We found it very interensting to read about the owner and his passion for collecting. The Manor was used for his collections whilst... More

A house packed with objects from all around the world, especially from Far East. This rich guy bought many Chinese Cabinets which are all antique. Mr Wade himself did not stay in the main building, but in an annex building, which also very interesting to see. Beautiful gardens as well.

A lovely country house ruined by being filled with pointless collections. Had they been properly displayed and explained in a museum, they would have been worth the money that was obviously spent on them. The gardens and the buildings themselves are a delight however. If only the house had been kept/restored as it was at the turn of the century.... More

Full of thousands of weird and wonderful objects collected over many years. Nice gardens. Well worth a visit. Admission about £10.

If you are looking for a museum or typical country house to look around this is not the place. If you are looking to see an amazing and at times mind boggling array of items collected through a lifetime then don't miss it. We had a ten minute talk by an NT volunteer and that gave us a great framework... More

This is a Marmite house, you either love it or hate it. The weather was awful so indoors it was. Its a fascinating if shambolic collection of a wealthy man's passion. Some people call it rubbish others were delighted. I found it enchanting and a complete expression of a man showing the world he was rich and didn't give a... More

We visited this property after a break of 7 years and found it to be even better than we remembered it. loved the invitation admission ticket and then getting it embossed with a seal , what a brilliant idea. It was nice walking around the property without the children with us. room staff as helpful as always.

This amazing National Trust property should be a must visit to any NT member. The gardens have been laid out to reveal wonderful colours and scenarios as you wander round, some restoration work is underway to return the model village and clockwork railway that the previous owner placed in a hillside. This time of year the grounds leading up to... More

A splendid NT property! This eclectic collection makes for fascinating viewing. Every room is filled with treasures from around the world and the UK. The extremely helpful guides in the rooms can answer almost any question you care to ask. If you go, take a pocket torch with you as some rooms are quite dark. It's a bit of a... More
