Talk about a fulsome treat. Arlington Court & the NT Carriage Museum is a clear two for the price of one bonanza (and if members two for the price of none). Additionally, it boasts a most gracious, knowledgeable and devotedly admirable staff. Speaking with the...More

A lovely house with a really interesting history off the last owner,before she bequeathed it' to the national trust. A museum of carriages also not to be missed before you walk round the gardens.

Very nice place to spend a few hours, not just in the house, which wasn't the most exciting NT property, but the grounds and the carriage museum were interesting. Nice tea rooms and associated facilities.

Sorry , I can't remember if its an inclusive price. You need good weather to view the gardens and estate though. I have visited often enough to know rain isn't good for walking through the lower estate

Not absolutely certain, as we don't have a dog, but I did see some people with dogs on leads around the grounds but not in the house or carriage museum. Hope this helps.
