We visited hoping to hide from the autumn rain for a few hours. We hadn't read that the main attraction here is the garden and so were disappointed with the nature of the interior - three rooms with little information about the collections or the Otto himself. It seems impossible that an avid collector of science named Otto could not inspire something from the NT. I wouldn't pay the entry price again - £7.50 pp, as we were done in about 1/2 an hour. Perhaps the NT could offer a reduced fee for house only - I would have paid £4 and not felt too cheated.
We also visited the cafe - I wouldn't recommend it, because I can't get over the fact that a bowl of un-special soup and a roll was nearly a fiver. There's much better places to eat, with equally amazing views nearby,
Perhaps, if you are into gardens and go in the summer, this would be great, but in the autumn rain? Give it a miss.
