Fantastic stately home with lots to see both inside and outside. Lots of rooms stuffed full of furniture and personal items that make it feel homely. The Room Steward's have a wealth of information who can answer any question. A lovely gift shop full of tasteful item for the home as well as some local beer, jams and chutneys, biscuits and sweets. The grounds are extensive with plenty of walking round pretty gardens as well as The Cage, a hunting lodge on the hill. There's also a lovely little orangery with tropical plants. There's also a cafe to rest and recover with home made cakes.

Beautiful place. Only downside was kids play area was closed for renovation on the day but we'll be back! Something for everyone. Perfect for walking, coffee and ice cream, strolling the house and gardens. Kids outdoor play area; when open :) Nice touch having free to borrow balance bikes for toddlers. My toddler enjoyed having his first ever ride on one.

Love this amazing heritage. Staff is awesome. I can't praise them enough. Helpful, smiling lovely people who cares not just about customers, but place itself. I couldn't go inside of a hall, because it was a maintenance day(my mistake that I believed to Google maps and didn't check their website) 😅 But gardens with small architecture were fantastic. Excellent maintenance, beautiful flowers, hilly relief, plenty of things to see and do. Thanks!

Excellent house, gardens and park to visit. Formal gardens have activities for children, deck chairs in some areas for chilling, ideal for a picnic. Garden's, park and outside areas suitable for scooters, wheelchairs and other walking aids. Are some steps but routes available to bypass which staff will point out on map. House is only suitable for those able to move with a stick, stairs between floors. Is a large house with many rooms and plenty of places to rest. Highly reccomended for a day out.

Easy access from the A6 & plenty of parking spaces. Wonderful garden & lake for easy strollers or quickly access the hills beyond for the more adventurous. All of the usual facilities, food, drink & loos. Lots of fascinating history & art inside the hall if it's a rainy day.
