I felt as if I had visited the house before even though I hadn’t, there were only 4 rooms opened to the public we went upstairs to look at one painting and the plaster ceiling none of the upstairs rooms were opened I didn’t mind going upstairs but felt there should have been a sign at the bottom telling people there was nothing to see apart from one picture. The rooms were nicely furnish and the staff knowledgeable, we had a walk round the grounds and enjoyed the views, hopefully in time more rooms will be opened.

A beautiful home still lived in by the family. Not your usual NT property, it has no cafe, book shop etc. However it is still worth a visit for the garden and the garden structures. The views from the garden are stunning. The house itself is lovely if small, but the venetian paintings are gorgeous as are the ceilings.

Well worth visiting for the excellent plasterwork and lovely grounds and outlook. Very impressed with the NT volunteers who made us feel welcome. For future visitors come here first , about an hour then on to Upton House. Just enjoy!

Travelled 100 miles to have access to 3 rooms and no photos allowed! Very disappointed, perhaps if the family don’t truly want visitors to see their home and its history, then perhaps close the doors.

Visited here on a Saturday. Definitely one for National Trust members only as not worth the entry fee. Only 4 rooms open- entry hall, stairway, library, dining room. Disappointing- but I guess as people still live there they don’t want you in their home! No tearoom or shop. However, very friendly staff somewhat make up for the lack of things to see.
