A National Trust property that has it all; a fascinating house to explore, helpful and friendly guides, informative handouts in each room to read through, gorgeous grounds and lovely walks. The Jappanese garden was very pretty, although we had to admire it from a boundary fence. The walk down to the kitchen gardens should not be missed - Community allotments work well to bring the space back to life. If you find the little hut where the previous lady of the house used to sit with her children and listen to the recorded information (a small plinth to the left of the hut and easily missed unless you actuall sit in the hut) you will be able to listen to music, smell the sweet peas and fragrant herbs planted around you and relax and feel transported back in time - I thought it was a lovely touch.
