Entrance fee was cheap compared to many similar attractions. The gardens are beautiful, we spent a long time wandering round them and lounging in the sun on the deck chairs. It was a lovely, relaxed afternoon. The hall itself is very interesting to look round. There's a lot of conservation work going on to repair the fire damage to the... More

It was pouring when we finally found the hall, and we were surprised to find how much of a shell it was. Fascinating to see the buildings' foundations and sad to hear how it was pretty much deserted when marriage meant richer pickings and houses came into the family. The NT are doing a fine job of ensuring there is... More

The hall was intended as a grand three sided hall like Buckingham Palace without the later front. A history of misfortunes, starting with the first master dying before it was finished, culminated in a devastating fire which burnt out the main hall, leaving a shell and two wings. The East wing is an impressive stables, the West wing originally the... More

The theme to try and encourage 50 things before 11 3/4 means that the properties have lots of interesting things on for the kids In our case it was posies and mud pies. But the fact... More

Quite a lot to see and do, they even had kite flying on as part of the "50 things to do before you're 11 3/4" which my daughter loved. Most of the hall is open including the cellar. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
