We were blessed with a glorious sunny Sunday despite being October. We packed all there was to do here into our day. Beautiful garden, interesting house, steep but worthwhile walk to and from the coast path. Slightly bemused at no photography in the house seeing as most of the contents are not original - and these days so many properties like this are now permitting photography - only usually saying no if copyright restrictions are in place. Also the route around the house relies very much on the volunteer guides, who in the main were pleasant and informative except for one lady who was quite sharp with us about the fact we needed to descend from the upper floor via the staircase in the servants quarters and not back the way we came up - a few informative signs would correct this as I noted we were not the only folk there that day who were "scolded" for going the wrong way. Please don't get me wrong however, this was a splendid day out, but I do feel the whole point of Trip Advisor is just to point out the little things that matter and would clinch a 5 star rating from us instead of 4.
