This is one of the best guided tours I have ever been on. The house is amazing and both guides were obviously very passionate about the history involved. Lunch at the orangery was lovely. Fresh sandwiches and pastries. The gardens are also lovely.

Excellent gardens and house to tour around and a lovely chapel onsite. This is located of the A38 near to Chudleigh in Devon. This is a great experience and the gardens were really enjoyable on a clear day.

We visited on a showery day so we were unable to make the most of the grounds. The formal gardens are quite small but pretty, and the lakeside areas very pleasant. The house is only available to visit by guided tour which lasted well over...More

Who knew there was this stunning, hidden gem 10 miles from my home? The gardens are truly beautiful, very tranquil. The guided tour of the house was a bit over 2 hours. The guides, who alternated with information in different rooms, were extremely knowledgeable. Really...More
