A lovely place to visit, especially for children. The grounds are lovely to walk round, picnic tables located at many spots. Lots of wildlife to see together with a new bird hide.Various trails and items for kids to find and count. Inside the palace , the chapel is very pretty and some great interactive displays are located throughout. The museum in the opposite wing is also very interesting. It looks like a lot of work is going into developing the site further with the addition of new features. The guides and staff were all so friendly and knowledgeable and the cafe is well worth a visit, really nice food and coffee. Well worth a visit.

Looks like more house than castle. Interesting museum and lifetime of Church servants. If you wish to show kids last centuries life timeline is a good place to do it. Each room has interactive video tours, an excellent way to learn and enjoy the tour. Some parts of the Mobile museum were closed. Cafe and shop on site. Interior and art collection. Unexpected find.

Visited recently and spent longer there than we thought because there was so much to see and listen to via the audio stories. Really nice lady welcomed us and gave us some really insightful information. We then used the audio devices (recommend anybody use these) so we got to hear many of the stories about the history of the place which added even more to the visit. Recommended!

What a great place to visit & well worth the admission. Welcoming staff with history knowledge,a lovely shop,lots of Xmas trees & a lovely cafe with meals,sandwiches & cakes also not that pricey. There is also a very interesting museum in the winding corridors that we really enjoyed. There is a lovely walk around the property about 25 minutes to get around it. They have lots of events for Xmas & will keep an eye on 2023 events as would return. There are second hand books for sale in the kitchen £2 each

Took my wife for afternoon Tea on her birthday, lovely food and museum was really interesting especially the archeology section. Wasn't open full because of an antiques fair but returning again one week after to do the stately home and grounds. Well worth the buck.
