I've been coming here for around thirty years and as yet I haven't been into the house (there's still time) so you will have to read other people's reviews for that. The grounds are fantastic and I was there with our grandchildren the other day - crocus are a sight to see right now but there is something for almost any time of year. Kids like the farm and old buffers can wander theough the bygone farm machinery and equipment and bore everyone with how it used to be.
Parking is free - you pay for the house or farm but that's fair enough.
Take a tour round the walled gardens and through the greenhouses, walk for miles through the woods or play on the biggest lawn you'll ever see - it's up to you.

Great playground which is fairly new. Kids had a fantastic time and had to wait till night fall before we could drag them away. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and beautiful surroundings.
