It's a shame that the house is closed at the moment but understanable and in any case the walks around the gardens were very pleasant. Nice to get outside and wander through the walled gardens and along the water gardens and up to the sundial etc. A perfect afternoon.

Upset as unclear no dogs in the grounds allowed. When I got home searched the site & took a bit of finding that it’s mentioned no dogs I. Grounds. Only allowed in overfill car park. So no tea room, no walk. Not on.

My young son loved running around the gardens and exploring the various sections. For a property that is much smaller than the large grounds of Basildon or Stourhead, I still felt like there was a lot to see. The flower borders in the walled garden are absolutely beautiful and so peaceful. I can imagine coming here and just sitting on a bench for some reflection. My only frustration is that the gardens are currently open 2pm-6pm, which is quite a short timeframe; but I understand this is the family’s decision. You don’t have to book, the car park is quite large and we had a wonderful picnic tea next to the lake.

A National Trust property which is open, but only the Car Park, toilets and gardens at the moment. There is an entrance fee for non-members. At the moment there is no need to book a visit, but do check before going. A good place to visit and meet up with an old friend. I particularly liked the curving avenue of trees leading up to the house, which unlike most avenues had fairly spaced out trees but in two rows either side of the curving road – most attractive! The gardens are excellent for a wander round, often with distant views over parkland. Various sites of interest have or are being developed in the park, with a large water feature (Peto Water gardens), sculpture, obelisks, urns, seating and so forth. The site has two lakes, endearingly named ‘Big lake’ and ‘Small lake’ on the handout, and ‘The lake’ and ‘Little lake’ on some maps.

Such a hidden gem of a National Trust property. Even though the house is closed, the gardens are open from 2-6pm. Toilets are available but otherwise the Tearooms are closed. No prior booking required too. The walled garden is spectacular and one of the best we have seen in an NT property. The woodland walk takes you past the house and past sculptures, installations and water features. There was hardly anyone and it was lovely and peaceful throughout. We stayed for approximately 2 hours admiring the various features.
