Once again another visit spoilt by the attitude of staff/volunteers at this attraction. We first had a problem when visiting with our grandchildren . Grumpy , unchild friendly and very intent on making sure that we didn't linger too long as 'we ARE CLOSING SOON' we were told at least three times. (Why close so early ??)That combinded with a very brusque attendant at the famous chimney, almost pushing a reluctant child up the entrance did not sit well with my daughter in law.
Next visit we picked up some litter that had been stuffed in to a topiary hedge. We walked past the picnic area, no rubbish bins! We continued to the entrance to the museum and went to hand the offending crisp packets to the attendant to be told ' we can't take that' The bins are by the toilets, go out of the door , turn left.......Fortunately a younger assistant merely took the offending littter and said 'thank you, i will dispose of it for you' The coffee shop needed the tables cleared and the floor swept, This was only midday and they did not appear to be very busy.I was ashamed to have taken our visitors in there and on behalf of the National Trust .
