While I have visited Beningbrough before it is some time since I have. I found the place disappointing its still a rather empty. Little attempt has been made over the years to add more furniture and the present regime seems more interested in museum type displays. These displays tell you nothing more than you could learn from a leaflet and distract from the atmosphere and aesthetics of the place.
The display of Royal portraits was dull and artistically worthless and do not get to see more than enough of them in the mass media.
The garden was good and given it was a weekday free from spoilt middle class kids.
My friend who has given up her NT membership( and just wanted to visit the café was asked to pay the full entry price just to use it.
The NT should stick to what it did best in the past in this area ,that is presenting historic interiors with taste and care.
