Home to the Benthall family this small hall is very pleasant and has a nice garden. Some nice staircases and rooms to view with plenty of family history

Not, by any means, the National Trust's largest or most impressive property, but well worth a couple of hours' exploration. The house itself is quite small, and can get very busy. It's probably best to explore the delightful gardens and try one of two parkland...More

One of the smaller NT properties but no less interesting than many of the better known larger ones. You'll need to plan a visit because of limited opening but well worth making the effort. We started with the tea room situated in the house. It's...More
