Wonderful role playing guide who gave the manor tour in character. Also worth special mention was the live guitar player in the hall playing Tudor tunes. It’s is a simple house unusual in being unmodernised, at least in the tour areas.
Tours seemed to be every couple of hours so more frequent than older reviews suggest.

Fabulous house and the tour guide was very well informed about the history of the house and the various owners. The gardens and borders provide wonderful autumn colour as they take us into winter.

On arrival we where given a timed ticket to tour the house. The guide not sure how long had been doing it but was a little unsure on some points & jumped about. Don't understand why you do part of the Hall then move to a room to come back to hall to listen to more information. Part of this house is still lived in so some family photos around. Grounds & garden not the best. Cafe dreadful help yourself with honesty box. Paper cups a definite no for me.

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the building and grounds. Our guide was well versed on the history of the property. Definitely worth a visit, especially on a sunny day so the extensive grounds can be properly appreciated!

Lovely house and gardens...the epitome of a hidden gem. But our visit was let down by the guides.. too many cooks, disoraanised, random and failing to engage with the group. National Trust could do so much better.

Lovely little property with superb gardens. Jim gave us an excellent guided tour of the house and had a wealth of knowledge to impart. The nice thing about this house is you can touch the furniture unlike most other NT properties. Loved seeing the spinet and virginal. The gardens are an absolute delight.

We recently visited on a Sunday afternoon, having driven through some narrow country lanes to get there. We were able to park on a grass verge close to the entrance.

We spent just over an hour wandering through the garden, around the pond, before finishing with some self-service tea and biscuits with an honesty box. We also had a short peek at the Chapel but didn’t sign up for a pre-booked tour of the Great Hall. We looked into the stables but there were no horses present !

Overall, it was pleasant experience without being stunning or exceptional. Good if you are a National Trust member but I am not sure I would have been too happy to pay £7 as a non-member.
