Not bad but price steep compared to other gardens we have visited. Food dreadful for the prices asked. Don't bother with cafe unless its just for a bit of cake.

A lovely stately home with a warm and homely atmosphere.
Good ample parking adjacent to the pedestrian entrance. Friendly and welcoming staff amply dispersed around the house to help with information.
Lovely house that is full of interesting furniture and paintings.
A great insight to the life of Ralph Dutton (Lord Sherbourne).
The gardens are a joy to explore and perfect on a sunny day. Beautiful views across the countryside.
The cafe is excellent with both indoor and outdoor seating.
A gem of the National Trust.

The gardens are well looked after and very attractive, there are some lovely views over the countryside. We particularly enjoyed seeing the walled garden where they grow much of the fruit and vegetables used in the cafe. The house was beautifully refurnished in the 1960 s following a fire. We particularly liked the pictures given to young children to help them enjoy the visit better, worked very well.

Even though we went at the end of September, the garden was still full of various flowers, loads of dahlias, but also scented roses, salvia and others.

Lots of different garden styles; superb views over the surrounding countryside.

The house itself, from the outside, is not to my taste, but inside is glorious. Although gutted by a fire in the 1950/60s, it has been sympathetically restored. Amongst wonderful art, there are magnificent collections of pietro dura and other stoneware, as well as pottery and other objets d’art.

There is a parish church in the grounds with some interesting stained glass windows and memorials, along with some very old encaustic tiles round one floor memorial.

The cafe is small, but seems to operate reasonably efficiently with a smallish, but fresh and large-helping hot meal service being served up until 2:30.

We stopped here on the way to our accommodation in Hampshire. It is a good traditional National Trust house we nice grounds and gardens.
It needs more than one visit to do it justice as there is a lot to take in. It is well worth a visit if you are in the area
