There are lots of improvements being made to the garden, but it is a shame it is becoming more 'National Trust'-ified. Once it used to sell plants that were spares from the garden, now they are bought in. The house is worth going around, and as ever the staff are interesting and informative. There are plenty of facilities for children,... More

A truly great day out, and an amazing story of how they purchased the house back,some fascinating pieces of furniture in the rooms, and then a great walk through the walled garden and greenhouses, There are some stunning views over Herefordshire and the Chapel.

Set amid beautiful scenery with lime and chestnut avenues, this courtyard house on an ancient site, basically Jacobean, but with later alterations, presents a cheerful Gothick facade with the interesting family church to one side. The interiors vary between 17th century Jacobean, Georgian rococo, Strawberry Hill Gothick, and neo-Georgian. The rooms are not grand but are full of light and... More

Approach is by a tree-lined drive, which ambles gracefully With fields and woods on either side, both landscaped tastefully. An ample parking area is reached with house in view; A kiosk, where the National Trust asks what you want to do. We didn't want to see the house, as t'was quite late in the day So, we went to view...

This castle is close to Ludlow in the Welsh Marshes with stunning views including views of the Black Mountains. The house had been in the Croft family ownership since the Domesday book until handed to the National Trust in 1959. The present house dates from the mid 17th century although it has overtones of earlier styles. Many of the contents... More

We recently visited this castle whilst staying in the area. The castle and grounds are well maintained, but felt let down by the visitor experience. There was not as much visitor information available as I would have liked. Some information was provided in booklets located in each room. Another item to note, which I did not realise from the website,... More
