We visited with our 4 Kids ages 6-15. The house tour was amazing. The rooms that are currently open are must see. We weren't too interested in the the historical/designer clothing displays, but if you are it is worth a visit. The grounds were great, a lot of places to ramble, and the youngest loved the farm animals.

It's all about costumes, so if you're not all that bothered about nondescript costumes you'll feel frustrated that these are displayed at the expense of the items in the house. Just not great. We left feeling disappointed.

The house is awe inspiring the grounds are magnificent as are the gardens. The tour guides as you'd expect are very knowledgeable. The gardens are brilliant and we had a wonderful walk in the grounds. I would recommend a visit definitely.
