I took a chance the dreary weather would buck up today and indeed it did once I'd got here after a 20 minute bus journey from Wakefield (use the 223/485/495/496). Not many people about on Mondays and Tuesdays as the house and formal gardens aren't open. However, the shop, cafe and parkland ARE open and it's the best time to explore the buttercup meadow which leads up to the obelisk gatehouse. A rustic bench is strategically positioned right by it so you can stretch out and enjoy the view and solitude. NB - no entrance charge for the parkland.
