Visited this beautiful house with my dad & daughter & it didn't disappoint. Make sure you ask at the kiosk as they assumed we were only visiting the gardens. Lovely walks & the rare breeds is a hit with the kids especially the pigs.

First time back in years, and as nice as I had remembered. The house is more interesting than I recall - the panels downstairs explaining its fortunes (and losses of them!) really set the scene. Food in the Stables restaurant was home cooked and very...More

What a lovely house, with nice gardens and a very large estate to explore. Home farm is a working farm so lots to see there too. Plenty for adults and kids to do to fill a nice day out.

Wonderful experience. Loved walking in the woods, our dog had loads of exercise. The grounds are very well kept, farm animals grazing over large areas a perfect countryside experience. Finished with a visit to the Hall, afternoon tea and some purchases in the NT shop.

Arrived and there was plenty of parking and only cost £2 for the day. We wondered around the estate, lots of people with kids on bikes and dogs. Went for a coffee which was also very good.
