A Jacobean house with charm; this is not a typical National Trust visit. The National Trust has adopted the approach to conserve rather than to restore and the house is as it was when the family left. It seems they never had quite enough funds to keep up to the maintenance and certainly not enough to modernise with changing fashions, so much of the interior is original. You really sense the history of the place. The room guides were friendly and informative and the gardens pretty. There is a temporary arrangement for selling hot drinks, but there are plans for a cafe in the future.
