  • Lovely day out with the family. A lot to do at a nice pace. The home and rooms were well kept and enjoyable to view. The grounds were beautiful and we went on a leisurely walk that took about two hours. We had a lovely picnic and ice cream. Was a relatively inexpensive day as we had free membership passes, brought our own picnic. The team room was nice and the staff pleasant.
  • This national trust house/park is great for a wide range of different activities from picnicking in the park, seeing the wildlife or taking in the picturesque views; visitors can also visit the historic house and it's excellent art/sculpture collection.
