We are NT members and having read the NT handbook were aware this is not a large property.
Having said that as part of a day out it was worth the visit. We enjoyed a stroll round the gardens, then spent time wandering round the castle. Parking may be a problem if it gets busy but our visit was a showery day, we parked opposite and had a coffee in the Castle Barton restaurant/tea room first. A tranquil location.
