This is so worth visiting. It's not a grand NT house and garden BUT they let dogs in both house and garden which is great. The fountain is spectacular and the meadow stunning. Loved the faded elegance of the house so nice to see somewhere...More

Unable to go into the house so walked round the gardens then watched the fountain do it's party piece. Well worth a visit but it would pay to enquire if the fountain will be working on the day you visit

All a bit strange. A very lived-in house. It has treasures, but the paint is peeling from some of the portraits and others painted on boards are starting to split. We were told 'you wont want to miss the kitchen' - we decided it was...More

Lovely sunny day to enjoy the fountain display. Half an hour of fun. Great to see all the children in swimming costumes running through the spray. Lots of families eating picnics in the extensive grounds. Giant trees in woodland area for further play/ walks. Inside...More

We weren't staying far from here and the grounds are fairly pretty to walk around but the fountain is worth a visit. There is a tea room as well serving home made cakes although I didn't try any. Check the times of the fountain prior...More

The house and grounds are sublime but the fountain should be listed as one of the wonders of the world. It was a 30 minute extravaganza of the forces of nature and provided fun and exceptional experiences for visitors of all ages
