We visited the house and grounds on a busy weekend. Access to the house is by guided-tour and we had to wait a while for a place. In the meantime the person at the desk suggested we take a walk in the grounds using a map which marked points where Robert Frost poems had been posted. This was a good walk round the nearer part of the estate and an interesting way to use the time before the tour.
The tour covered the history of the estate and its owners, with particular emphasis on the importance in the conservation movement. Once inside the house some of the art (paintings, objects etc) was described as well as the more "domestic" items on show. This was interesting and informative.
The house is set in a garden adjacent to a large wooded area, across the road from the farm-complex and car park. We did not explore the farm.
