Only the grounds were open. We spent the afternoon wandering around them and they were lovely. You cannot beat Capability Brown's designs, always with the quiet trickle of water and wonderful views.

A lovely day out. Beautiful, clean, peaceful. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. We enjoyed ourselves very much and will definitely visit again....and again.

We visited the gardens as the castle was closed. The gardens alone are amazing and well worth a visit. So beautiful and peaceful and so much history there.

Stunning gardens this Easter and a great place to walk and enjoy the tranquility and history of this place. We just did the gardens this time, and the Easter trail was well laid out and easily doable. Minimal other things to do (hense only three stars), but that suited us just fine.

I will give it 5 star as its a beautiful and interesting place with plenty to see. Butthw last room with the smell things made me throw up as I got back to the car park, and all the way back home, which was 1 and half hour drive, I had to have the window wide open all the way as it made me very sick. I don't know if anyone has experienced this
