  • Hi outstanding place will return when the rest of the house is open. Understand they have to do renovation work. But I do not understand why we had to pay to get into the exhibition when we are members.. so did not go into that part. very outstanding. Gardens and the grounds. Are very good. Good work National Trust. Last point on this felt sorry for the staff asking us have you paid for the exhibition. Which restricted as going to other parts of the house like I said before we are paid up members that's the only downside I can say. The staff are very friendly and considerate. Considering how busy it was.
  • This is a beautiful house and grounds. The collection of paintings is huge. All the rooms are on the ground floor (except certain days when some bedrooms are open) so easily accessible by wheelchair or walkers. Some volunteers dress in period clothes and explain what their role would have been in the past. After viewing the house you can walk through the vast grounds and look for the heards of deer roaming around. We had a picnic while enjoying the beautiful landscape.
