I visited on the Saturday during the Rochester Dickens Festival (it's usually only open on Thursdays & Fridays), whilst the entry fee is not cheap one can only begin to appreciate what the maintenance costs must be to maintain this wonderful historic home. For the ticket price you receive a detailed guide which allows a slight discount on repeat visits. I certainly thought it was worth the visit as the interior is stunning and the history is fascinating. The were volunteers in each room who were extremely knowlegable and even the owner was on hand to talk to visitors about the mammoth task of renovating and refurnishing it over the last 20 years. The garden is also splendid and immaculately kept, clearly a lot of thought has gone into the design both in terms of the planting and the landscaping. For anyone not interested in the house the garden alone can be visited for a reduced fee.
