Lovely house. Have not given 5 stars as the guided tour felt a bit rushed. Beautiful gardens . Would definitely recommend as a half-day/day out. Apparently the tea rooms are good too although I didn't get to go😔

Fascinating house to go round, guided tours only, our guide was brilliant and knowledgeable. It's still a family home and feels lived in. If you are into horses then the house tour is a must with all the horse paintings. Gardens very good too, time...More

What a great setting as one drives over the fine arched 18th century stone bridge into the park surrounding this lovely Queen Anne house. We had a little time before our booked house tour, so began to wander around the lovely herbaceous borders. Tall flowering...More
