Great place to visit. Lovely gardens and grounds. Great little shops and village. The house is amazing and plenty of history to read as you walk around.

The actual house is beautiful but it is lacking inside some NT love to be honest it is very bare and the guides were either rude or not interested. I was with my two year old and they moaned I put his rucksack on to walk down the stairs - there was nothing for me to damage (they could have offered to carry it!!) it isn’t a very flowing house I am not sure we saw it all.

Visited on a pleasant day in April. Plenty of parking spaces and a couple of minute walk down to the house. As the house was not yet open, we visited the museum which was a lot of fun. I would imagine people of any age would find something to interest them. The volunteers in this section were particularly friendly and knowledgeable. The bedrooms on the ceiling were a great novelty. A room guide who noticed I sat to get a better view gave us some more information. Apparently local children were asked what they should do with the space and that was their suggestion. Upside-down bedrooms, brilliant! I doubt s group of adults could have come up with such a good idea for the place.

After leaving the museum, we had a quick walk through the grounds which were pleasant. Nice to see families playing games such as frisbee on the grass. Bird treat making sessions were taking place in the boat house. The kids play park looked a lot of fun. If there hadn’t been so many children enjoying it, I might’ve been tempted to have a play myself. But no point embarrassing myself in front of so many people.

Got a cracking little baking cookbook from the gift shop. All recipes requiring 3 ingredients. Can’t wait to try a few out.

Lastly onto the house which was very interesting. We did rush the visit a little as had travelled quite some distance and had a couple of other places to see. Very much enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend visiting especially for families. Plenty for younger visitors to see and do.

It was a long walk from the car park, but there was a ride for the disabled. The home is interesting, but the museum is the highlight. There was enough to keep me interested and quite a wide variety.
