“Let down”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We took a visit here recently. We were very let down by the volunteers whom were unapproachable and we were made to feel very uncomfortable.
There were not many rooms open in the house and no photographs were aloud.
The gardens are beautiful but several areas were roped off with no access due to recent bad weather.
We are regulars at National Trust properties but this one was a big disappointment and not worth the entrance fee.

“Fascinating place, good gardens”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The history of the place was fascinating and make it a worthwhile place to visit. the gardens were also good and extensive, especially the kitchen gardens wear stout shoes as the car park is some distance from the actual house and the kitchen gardens in another direction, but could easily spend a day there exploring.

“Great Gardens”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Lovely place for a day out and very beautiful. Set in the Devon countryside, go at a time when the flowers are out, very pretty.

“What a Gem”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Visited the house for the first time after years of just going to the grounds and the restaurant. What a treat of bizarre architecture and decor. Lovely views and of course the fantastic gardens and parkland. Shame there is still no longer a golf course there. ;-)

“Don't miss!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

This is one of the best NT properties that we have recently visited. The grounds are stunning with wonderful gardens and vistas. A visit inside the house is a must as it has been lovingly restored. There is also a good cafe and the volunteers are both knowledgeable and helpful.
