“Amazing Gardens, House quite nice too”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

The gardens are really stunning, definitely worth a visit. We love visiting country houses/ national trust etc. The house is nothing spectacular but is very well kept and the staff were really friendly and helpful.nice little cafe too. Not a very big house but a nice way to spend a couple of hours. If you have to chose one or the other opt for the gardens (even in the rain we enjoyed them)

“Beautiful gardens”
Reviewed July 12, 2012 via mobile

Topiary gardens amazing, even my dad who normally hates formal gardens loved them. Restaurant went out of their way to make me something that wasn't available and the hall itself was interesting, well set out.

“Interesting house, stunning gardens.”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

House opened at 12pm on a Sunday. We arrived at 11am and explored the stunning gardens. Never seen anything like it! House was fantastic. Excellent guides and an activity sheet for the kids to do. Well worth a visit and the entry price.

“A stately home that is fun”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

The building is a fine Elizabethan manor house that is just as impressive inside as out. The staff are very friendly and informative. Although the house is great it is the gardens that steal the show. You have to see them to appreciate it. It is like stepping into wonderland with Alice.

“Fabulous parkland”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

The topiary garden is fascinating, but even better is a walk through the park - beautiful woodland and riverside landscape, with a herd of fallow deer and the unique 'Bagot' long-horned goats. The walks in the park are on public footpaths.
