Didn't know what to expect here. Had a very pleasant visit. This house is tenanted so only open on certain days a year. There is not a huge amount to see in the house as it mostly contains the tenant's furniture. We had a good tour by one of the children of the tenants ~ very enthusiastic and clear. The garden is pleasant and they had a cream tea in the garden when we were there. You can also see an additional garden next to the hall and church (not National Trust). Lot's of parking.

Well worth a visit. Lovely house and garden. Also a quaint little church, that provides refreshments.

Visited on Sunday 10 June 2018 as the grounds were open as part of the National Garden Scheme. There were six gardens open including those of the hall. The gardens were all well looked after with some areas close to the hall itself in need of care. Steps and paving round ponds had signs on them warning about the fact that they were unsafe. A lot of garden at the rear of the hall with very topiary clipped box hedges.

It's a home that is occupied by a family. Lovely gardens and rural views. It's preserved, and has a homely feel.

Lovely house and gardens OK to get out for an hour there was one volunteer I didn't like my 5 year old had picked up something of display which I told him to put back which he was doing but they lady took it of him didn't even give him chance she said nothing to him or me I understand there on display but if they don't want kids to touch don't put them out or put a notice up. I just thought she was rude. Worth a visiting once if you have an hour.
