The variety and quality of home made cakes available in the tea shop are awesome! The house is well presented and the guides are knowledgeable and keen to explain. The internal light wells / mini courtyards could do with a lick of paint!

All the different parts of the house are set out with beautiful furniture and excellent paintings, depicting the history of the Hall and its various occupants. Outside there are excellent grounds to wander around, with a llamas enclosure, restaurant and coffee shop, as well as a souvenir shop. Great day... More

It has been improved greatly recently,but it can't compete with Chatsworth and the like.There is a room of different specimens which my grandson enjoyed seeing and there is also a backbone of a whale which was washed up on a nearby beach and it was this that gave Herman Mellville his idea for his book "Moby Dick"
