Return visit today. It has to be one of, if not the most impressive estates in England. The gardens are beautiful. The rooms of which there are a large number to view have excellent displays of fine art, furniture and fittings.
Do approach the staff. They are very welcoming and knowledgeable. We were given a really good interpretation of a number of paintings in one of the rooms.
The new car parking arrangement works very well. Maybe a larger shelter to wait in would help given the weather today.
A really good and enjoyable visit.
