Everyone seems to rave about this place but I can't see what all the fuss is about, frankly. Yes it is an attractive house with lots of wood panelling and some nice artefacts scattered around. Yes it is a calm place and has a nice view. Yes it has nice gardens. But unless you are really into art or William Morris designs I predict you will find it a bit underwhelming. The house felt a bit empty and some of the exhibitions (such as book coverings!) were of fairly niche interest in my view. Virtually all the visitors when I was there were 55 plus. I can't see it appealing to the younger generation. The most interesting aspect of the history of the house was its use as a Prep School and this was glossed over, which was a shame. Staff were friendly and professional.
