Chose to visit when the weather was not all that great but still had a really good time. There was also a special themed event on but sadly attendance was not all that good because of the weather. The house is partly open and has a small exhibition providing the history of the house from its aristocratic owners through it time as a military hospital then a company headquarters before being taken over by English Heritage. Some for the rooms can then be visited but are not furnished. The gardens have some formal flower beds but the majority is laid out as wood land and open parkland. Various statues and building are spread out in the grounds and there is also a long lake. As you go on little paths through the woodland there are surprises as you come across hidden areas with different statuary. There are free audio guides which provide a tour to follow and give information on the various stopping points. We spent a very pleasant time slowly walking around the grounds and even the rain did not diminish our enjoyment. It is definitely on the list to return and hope for better weather.
