We arrived with 4 children, a picnic hamper and hopes of a few simple all games. We were then told that the 'owner' had decreed no ball games or picnics within the grounds from Easter 2014 onwards which frankly is ridiculous. Furthermore, we were told by NT staff that he had been patrolling the grounds berating members for picnicking. We pay a membership to the National Trust and expect to be able to enjoy the benefits of the membership. It seems unreasonable for the owner of a house which is subsidised by the NT to preclude members from enjoying a simple picnic with their 4 young children. We have visited many NT properties but would not visit this one again.
