National Trust property on Exmoor. Good parking, good walks of varying lengths, and the house is one of the more interesting NT properties I have been to. Carriage is very interesting, well presented, and the Speakers carriage a real spectacle.

Sorry , I can't remember if its an inclusive price. You need good weather to view the gardens and estate though. I have visited often enough to know rain isn't good for walking through the lower estate

Not absolutely certain, as we don't have a dog, but I did see some people with dogs on leads around the grounds but not in the house or carriage museum. Hope this helps.
