Worth getting there early to go on the guided tour of the house before it opens. Lots of fine paintings on show. Great views of the Plym river and some easy walks

Education, fresh air and a feeling of being appreciated as a visitor. So many other attractions could learn from the way the National trust staff here look after people.

Very interesting house with wonderful ceilings and paintings. Lovely gardens to wander around. What a pleasure to find a waitress service tea room in the old chapel with tea being served in china cups.

A very interesting house with the usual helpful volunteers in each room, and absolutely gorgeous woodland walk along the river estuary with views towards Plymouth. The garden near the house was full of daffodils too.

Easy to find and a great welcome from the girl at the hut. Walked the gardens with our dog; hills and flat roads. My wife spent half an hour in the shop and had not told me how much she spent. Grumpy Yorkshire Man.

Extremely interesting house and garden set in an idyllic position outside Plymouth. The chapel houses a tea shop which provides an excellent selection of light lunches and superb teas. The ambience of the building and the excellent service make it a must on every visit.
