Visited with my 5yrs old grandaughter during half term "family week". We were greeted on arrival by the guides suitably dressed in costumes. The children were encouraged to dress up in the costumes provided or come in their own outfits. Richard led us through the house room by room taking us through the history with interesting stories for both adults and children who eagerly volunteered to join in scenes such as being knighted by the king. The tour ended with a visit to the dungeons,then the wishing well, the children having been given the necessary penny. A falconry display followed which had to be shortened because of the bad weather. The only disappointment was the Tea Room which was totally inadequately staffed with just one person behind the counter literally taking orders to the kitchen, managing the coffee machine,waiting on the tables and manning the till. The menu lacked even a simple sandwich! The extensive grounds had trails to follow which we didn't attempt.
