The inside of the house is amazing and it's a great touch to have information cards showing the individual staff members' favourite artefacts or features of the house: I especially enjoyed the commentary by...

Very enjoyable visit. Lots to see in the house. Stood on the square of carpet used in the Queen's coronation which is in one of the bedrooms. Helpful volunteers. Delightful garden tour with nice lady.

My favourite National Trust property to visit, the grounds are beautiful and the room attendants are so friendly and knowledgeable. Had a long stroll with family then went to the cafe for a bite to eat, I found the food great but prices were a little steep for hot food (but most national trust properties have this pricing) it still...

A beautiful gem of English history tucked away in the Kent countryside Amazing building and grounds. Our visit was made more enjoyable by the volunteers in period costume showing dances of the day and getting the visitors involved my children loved this

Lovely moated house with other pleasant character buildings across the lawn. Lots of rooms one after the other in a square surrounding the courtyard on two floors. Look out for the huge dog kennel in the courtyard. Large car park with disabled parking near entrance and a golf buggy to transport disabled visitors from the car park to the house.... More
