What a wonderful place to visit, so interesting and a beautiful garden to stroll around. A must if you are interested in history, poetry and music or even if you are looking for a corner of happiness for an afternoon.

Stunning grounds and house. Perhaps a bit more history of the house it’s self as well as the families own artefacts would have made the visit more interesting. Disappointed with tea shop that sold only cake and as I’m gluten free, there was nothing I could eat.

Went here after a recommendation from a friend and very please I did. Friendly greeting. Covid measures in place, paths clearly sign posted. But plenty of room so more or less free to wander where we wanted. All visitors respectful of social distancing. Chairs dotted around the gardens, so tranquil to sit listening to the trees rustling etc,
Staff were friendly and informative. Warm enough to sit in the gardens with tea and delicious cakes.
Was told June is the best month to visit so shall be back next year when hopefully Covid free!

We had a fantastic experience, the gardens were intimate, colourful and peaceful. Attention to detail was excellent with friendly and informative staff. A step back in time.

Lovely gardens with tea room.
Unfortunately the house is closed at present due to Covid but the gardens were delightful. It’s £6 per head with no discounts.

We visited in the summer, and were bowled over by the beauty of the gardens which have a delightfully intimate feel. Visiting in the winter meant we were able to enjoy the log fires in the old house and the Christmas decorations - truly a place for all seasons.

Sympathetically renovated Elizabethan House with some really dedicated staff ready to tell all A’s you go round. The gardens are full of interesting plants with lots of colour and variety. Had tea and scones in the delightful tea rooms.

Our private tour was for 20 Classic Car Club members in two groups which were taken round by the two house owners Roger and Peter.
The house has a very intriguing history, having been built around 1450, modified by subsequent generations, rescued from dereliction in 1984 and then completely restored and improved by the present owners.
They were therefore extremely knowledgeable and brought the house alive with anecdotes and information on the residents and visitors over the years, including Charles II and Elizabeth I.
We were also taken to the beautiful Secret Garden that has been created since the owners took over, and was visited by Princess Alexander in 2017.
Altogether an absorbing and entertaining visit

lovely old house, lots to look at inside. staff informative. did not use the tea room but bought a few items as a gift. the tea towel was not that nice quality for it's price. Hope my neighbour did not think it was too cheap like too as a thankyou for looking after the cat.
The garden was okayish, we are gardeners so we are looking for lots of ideas etc. which we did not find. The shed with all the tools etc in was interesting but not cared for. We did like the cool window bringing the garden colour into the room effect in the house.

Lovely visit to the gardens today. Wonderful variety of plants...and so well kept...A joy to behold. What a pity people were smoking in the gardens and that the rural museum has a neglected feel about it ...especially as there are many fascinating objects in store.
