House and gardens maintained to the highest standard. Our visit was enhanced by the house and gardens being opened on Princess Dianna anniversary. Very moving experience. Beautiful lake. Guides are very knowledgeable, enjoy their excursion, and showing you the house.

Interesting information from our guide about the history of the family and the house. The gardens and grounds are very pretty, they had a bird of prey event on which was fun to see.

We were taken round by our guide, Diane who's knowledge of the family, house and contents was incredible. A very interesting couple of hours preceded by an excellent lunch in the cafe. All the staff very extremely fruendly and polite. A lovely way to spend a rainy day in Northamptonshire!
