This was a most interesting house with very helpful guides and in a lovely garden, well worth the effort to visit.
The house was burnt down in 1881 there are still more than 50 rooms to explore as if time stood still. The servants’ kitchen, and elegant Victorian family rooms, with a 17th century ceiling.
The garden displays super magnolia trees with ancient river side woodlands for off-road cycling. Dog friendly.
The Stables tearoom serves typical National Trust fare. Local food and gifts are on sale in the shop.
