Well worth a visit

Preserved Jacobean fireplaces, knowledgeable guides, and a chance to see how people really lived in it. Just wish more of it was open.

Visited on a damp March day but there were several visitors there. Surprised to see people seated in entrance hall having tea it seems to be used as an overspill for the tea room. A very comfortable house which you feel you could live in and the stewards in the various rooms were all very knowledgeable about the family and... More

A very unique church is part of the experience. Every Room has a story to tell including a wing where the cannons did some damage back in 1649.. A... More

Very interesting place, the guides had loads of information, we spent ages with one of the guides,he was so interesting to listen to and funny. Loved all the little quirky things in there. The church was good to, again the guide was very informative, and the grounds were lovely as well.

We were totally unaware of this hidden gem until it was suggested we should visit. What a superb and extremely interesting home to visit. It is still lived in and has a fascinating history (which I will not spoil for ou), Staff are friendly, knowledgeable and approachable.

Quirky smaller property with pleasant gardens and a small tearoom. If you're looking for something other than very grand mansions then this may be for you, with some very interesting things to see around the house.

Upon arriving here we were surprised to be directed towards a Church & told we could enter it if we wished. It turned out that it had been acquired by the NT as otherwise it would have fallen into dilapidation & it had strong connections with the house. Not much to see here so we made to the house which...
