I love visiting here I've been many times even hallowe'en when it's lit by candle light. It can be creepy never fails to bore me and the cafe in the stable is a must if you visit. Lots of ground to walk round also not for wheelchair use unless you stay on ground floor and some stairs make it hard... More

Sitting in what now is really the inner city this is a brilliant Jacobean Home in beautiful condition. It is a must visit but look out for the special events - if they are on - like the candle-lit events. They once did a brilliant Victorian Christmas.

First time I've been here and attended the Fright night on Sunday 30th October. The stately home is very impressive from the outside and within. This is the first time I've been to a 'fright night' at a stately home and was looking forward to it. The staff were great and the actors fabulous - their costumes very frightening. Unfortunately,...

Very interested guided tour which lasted an hour and a quarter. Lovely property in Jacobean style. Limited opening in the winter season. Cafe and gift shop on site.

We attended Sunday evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our group had about 35 in it and no one ruined the atmosphere with mobiles or photographs, our guide had made it quite clear this was not permitted. It was great fun and I can honestly say I was a complete wimp! I screamed the whole time, the staff were very entertaining... More

I attended the 7pm Fright Night Tour on the Friday, I had visited the Hall a number of times but never been on a spooky tour there before so was really looking forward to it, I wasn;t disappointed! The scares started right away and continued through the tour. The tour guide and other actors were entertaining and told us many... More

Such a fun night! Small tour groups which made it more intimate, brilliant actors in costumes/make up and lots of frights throughout the tour! Go with an open mind, be silly, have fun and enjoy yourself!

This is a great place to visit for several hours. The hall is Jacobean with many interesting features. The guides are excellent and can inform you about life in the hall and they can point out several features that you would easily miss. You can wonder about the place at your ease and ask the guides questions that they are... More

Great atmosphere, damn good acting, an enjoyable night, and tons of spooks! My only critique would be to include groups where mobile phone activity is restricted, and to possibly consider having smaller groups.
