The weather was terrible, very wet and had been for days. We were offered overshoes on entry, a good idea with the conditions. The house is very dark, so dark in places you cannot hardly see anything. The Tower is out of bounds except for the most nimble. It is hardly worth struggling up to the top floor as there is not a lot to see. A lot of the exhibits were not relevant to the house which is disappointing. There doesn’t seem to be any sense to the way things are displayed. Old stuff mixed with modern items and items with no connection to the house.
On the positive side, it was a nice lunch. The directions were a bit hit and miss as well. Even the lady on the door admitted that it was difficult to find your way around. Even being a National Trust member I shall not be making a return visit.
