The house would have been really interesting if we had not been told to double up and move along. The staff varied from absolutely exceptional to down right rude. When we reached the end of the tour we did not realise you had to go...More

We probably took an hour or so in the house and then half an hour in the gardens/lake as there isnt much to see. We were only there slightly longer than 2 hours because we had lunch in the cafe which is nice.
