What an amazing place. Loads of history and science set in a beautiful garden. Worth doing the 6.5 mile drive around the grounds. On a sunny day this is a definite picnic spot. Really helpful guides

Visited on a cold, horrible day, well worth the price of entry which was not cheap £19 per person if not a National Trust Member. The House is an absolute stunner and so ahead of its time. Despite its size there isn’t a single room...More

As far as I know you can take dogs in the grounds - you may be best having a look on their website :-)

Sincere apologies I did not get round to answering your question. I trust you found the answer anyway. All sites have details listed on the National Trust website for opening times, prices etc.
