This is one of the worst national trust houses we have visited three boring rooms and one of the rudest guides I have ever meet.if your paying on the day it's not worth the money , members don't travel more than 20 miles.Hi light of the trip the village pub.

Had a nice afternoon nosing around Farnborough Hall. Because it's still a family home, there are only 3 rooms open - a five minute skip through, so not really worth the entrance fee. The gardens however are stunning, and certainly worth a walk around. There's no tea room on site, but the Farnborough village hall does a fabulous slice of... More

Takes you back 400 years. Beautifully preserved perfect example of an Englsh classic country house - still cared for by the family that built and originally furnished it in what must be one of the Trust's more successful relationships. Furniture and art collected over the years includes a series of marble busts of Emperors (or Popes?) brought back from Italy... More

Smaller national trust property; can only view a few rooms because the house is still a family home. Never the less, well worth a visit. Beautiful house which makes interesting viewing. Volunteers friendly and informative. The grounds are beautiful, and make manageable walking, with stunning views. Dogs welcome in grounds, a bonus. Coffee shop in nearby village.

We arrived and the view of the hall was amazing . On entering we were told no photographs could be taken inside as it's still a lived in residence ( prior notice would of been nice ). We only got to see 2 rooms downstairs , the entrance hall and stairs up to locked doors as these were the residential... More

Attractive Grade 1 listed country house. It is only open two days a week, and there is very little to see. You can only see downstairs,,,,some sculptured busts in the entrance hall, and copies of Canalettos in another room. (Yes, copies, the originals were sold last century to pay for the upkeep of the house ). National Trust members can... More

Stunning house, only open 2 days a week as there is a family already living there, which is nice to see. Beautiful grounds and walks. Well worth a look! The family loved their day out. (Please note its not a hotel!)

This is a nice stately home with only a few rooms that open to the public. The gardens are also quite small so won't take long to look around. Best to do this with Upton House if you are a National Trust member.

This is not actually a hotel but a National Trust property. We thoroughly enjoyed the house and the family feel that it had. The volunteers that were there knew lots about the history of the house and it was nice to see pictures of the incumbant family around. We enjoyed picturesque views as we walked up to the Obelisk. Lovely... More

This is a national trust property. I don't think it is a hotel, certainly not in the main house. This is one the National Trust's smaller properties. It is only open on Wednesday's and Saturdays. However, it is well worth a visit. It is not as crowded as some other NT properties which is pleasant. There are some delightful walks... More
