Plant Fair Visit

We try to go to the plant fair, held in May, each year if we can. Such a great place to hold it, wonderful atmosphere, lovely food and great bargains on plants.

We appreciated hearing the history of the house presented by a very good guide as we visited the different rooms. The gardens are also worth a look and we also enjoyed visiting the church next to the house.

I walked here from the Courts Garden which is relatively easy, through some marked fields. The House and grounds are lovely. There are guided tours which are very informative, and led by National trust volunteers.

Please visit this lovely house. The gardens are so pretty and quiet. An absolute delight. It would be lovely to sit in the corner and read a book and take a picnic. The guide was so informative.

As others have stated there is a formal tour of this unusual house set in tranquil gardens. The guide we had was witty and most informative. There are some odd features - a number of stag's heads mounted on the wall of the hall and three masks of a bishop, a demon and a jolly farmer. These were not mounted... More

This is well worth a visit if you are interested in the history of houses. On my first visit to this house many years agoI was not very impressed I found it very boring but my visit recently changed my mind you have to have a guided tour at specified times the narrator had a good voice and the story...

Although this is a National Trust owned property, it is managed directly by the family descendents of the former owners who still live at the property. The effort and enthusiasm shown by everyone involved made the visit extra special. From the careful tending of the delightful gardens, managed personally by the lady of the manor house who is often in... More

You can only visit this house by joining the guided tour which lasts about 45 minutes. The guide is very interesting and entertaining, giving a good insight into the life and times of the owners of the house. The gardens are very pretty and worth strolling through.

This has just about everything going for it. A stunning country location outside of Holt in rolling meadows and fields. A wonderful country Manor that dates back to 1060 with fine buildings and an excellent garden. The Public rooms have fine features including minstrel galleries, open fireplaces, interesting masques built into the Wall, living rooms with high backed sofas....its very... More
