This is a really lovely country house to visit. For some reason it doesn't seem as well visited as some of the other local houses (Lanhydrock for example) but we thought it was really the best. Firstly they have some excellent art, well worth seeing - a mix of old masters and some modern art. The house is still lived in by the family which makes it feel much more like a home and less like something the national trust have put together so you can 'see what it might have been like'. There is a picture trail for children and they have bothered putting together a lovely play room for children with costumes to dress up like the pictures in the house and lots of different reading books to stop and read - someone had really thought about the selection of toys too with things for boys and girls of all ages. The gardens are beautiful and have a great selection of sculpture. There was a good café and it was all you needed for a good day out
