Despite being April the gardens were full. Mainly tulips. House was interesting but not my taste. Children were loving it. Food could have been better.

Although busy because of Easter school holidays my friends & I really enjoyed our visit and the formal gardens, pool garden and woodlands were all amazing. Loved seeing the huge moths sculptures in the trees.

Having plenty of time to visit the grounds before the house opened, we walked the dog in the wider parkland first, then went through the stunning walled vegetable garden, into the impressive Douglas Fir walk, and then through the house approach into the more formal and woodland style gardens which surround. It is hard to describe the impact of these landscapes, but they can, quite literally, take you breath away.

The (uncovered/reinstated) interiors are gems of their period (and, whilst stunning, you can understand why the family decided they couldn't live with them on a day to day basis). Very helpful and informative NT volunteers.

We visited here on a very sunny Saturday in March. Our visit was only for a couple of hours as we were traveling Home following a holiday in North Devon.
It was the perfect place to stop. On a sunny day we were able to have a good walk around the beautiful grounds with our dog.
Due to the shortness of our visit we didn’t get to see too much & will hopefully return for a day trip as there is much to see & do.
Good also to see they have changed the parking situation as National Trust members do now get free parking.

We stopped off on our way up to Barnstaple. Interesting house. Unfortunately both pianos were being restored at the same time so my husband missed out on playing them. He likes to do this in all the NT houses we visit. Didn't have enough time to do the grounds justice. Looked as though there were some nice dog walks.
