The House itself is beautiful and not too large. You'll probably get most out of it with an audio guide or guided tour as there are numerous points of interest that you might just walk past and miss. Worth visiting on a nice day as the grounds are spectacular with great walks in the gardens and around the lake. There's a very competent cafe with excellent and rapid service that offers everything from snacks to full roast lunches, though it can be noisy and child orientated. Nice little kiddies playground too. Beware-the official car park accessed from the M4 is small and crowded, sometimes a left turn after the car park into the residential streets surrounding is the only way to find a parking place.
