One of the best historic houses and gardens that we have visited for many years. The vegetable garden is huge and gives inspiration to us amateur gardeners. Great food in the tea room at reasonable prices. Just a few negatives, as others have said, local...More

Privately owned with the family in residence, so only open on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Beautiful countryside and woodland all around. Interesting one hour tour of the house and family's history. Homely, comfortable feel to the place. Tea rooms don't open until 12.30, so...More

Wonderful gem of a place, do visit the main house for the guided tour as its full of history and has many wonderful pieces of art and furniture including Chippendale furniture and Canaletto paintings. The grounds café serves homemade lemonade and delicious cakes amongst other...More

Gardens are beautiful and well worth a visit. Entry fee of £5 very acceptable with plenty to look at and to walk around. Many colourful plants, and all very well maintained. Cannot fault. Disappointed by the tea room. Having ordered 2 ploughman’s - one ham...More
