If you like your historic properties full of roped off exquisite items don't come here.
If you think children should be seen and not heard don't come here.
BUT, if you want to enjoy and experience the most stunning views the Lake District has to offer in a real house, full of real character go and find your shoes.
If you think children and adults should experience art, and books and typewriters (yes, proper typewriters) and crafts and toys and fun for as long as they like, pick up your car keys.
If you want to wander and romp around beautiful grounds, you should now be driving to Grasmere.
If you want sit where ever you like in this amazing building, with a cup of coffee (and rather yummy cake) and just enjoy being there. Get your car parked and take the short walk through the village.
If you would like to meet the nicest NT staff ever, who genuinely love this beautiful old house and will make you love it too, you aren't even reading this bit - you're already there.
