BBC were filming so cables, people everywhere. We kept being asked to keep quiet. Told on arrival some of the rooms were being used for the filming so couldn't see those ' but don't worry as we'll show you some other rooms'. All the rooms are empty (except for BBC furniture )with cheap printed signs giving the room's name. One of the rooms even had the windows covered by bookcases and the walls also lined with dark grey bookcases 'these are BBC fixtures and aren't usually here'. We paid to see the interior of the house & not to be made to feel we were in the way of something more important. Why are the owners so greedy for cash ? They should discontinue tours whilst getting revenue from filming. Very disappointed.

This is on my door step and its a fantastic stately home yes its a bit run down but you have to remember this house is still privately owned and its work in progress. Please if you get the chance take the tour the rough corners add to the atmosfear and its well worth reading up on the estate first. you will be surprised with the connections and why its in the state it is (many thanks to the labour party you will find) great day out

Thank tony a

Some people who write reviews are mean spirited, the tour is an honest account of a worthy attempt to bring this important house back to life, great tour in my view

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent visit to Wentworth Woodhouse. I would be very interested in hearing your comments regarding my staff being rude? As to a lack of furniture and paintings, we do not advertise the house as being furnished, we find the majority of our visitors enjoy being able to see the space and architecture of the rooms, which if filled with fine furnishings visitors tend to miss.
