We were expecting a great egg hunt and were disappointed on that front. However, my grandsons loved the exhibits and the history. We also walked the gardens. And enjoyed the play area and bouncy castle. The boys are 6 and 3.

The Hall is free! It stores old outdated collections of "stuffed" animals which little kids seemed to enjoy. It doesn't take long to see all the rooms probably less than an hour. I am more interested in the history of the home and less in the natural history so I paid 5 pounds to take the kitchen and tunnel tour.... More

As you walk up the hill this magnificent house presents itself as full of promise. The grounds are wonderful to walk through with deer that appear to be quite used to being approached roaming around. The bluebells in the woods were just out. This property also has free access and on the whole is very good. I have said it... More

There is so much outside space and the scenery is just lovely, especially on a really sunny day. It's even better when all the deer are visible in the park. I also... More

The park is wonderful with lots of activities for the kids at the play ground and pleasant walks for everyone else. The Hall which is council run is a disappointment, run down sparce and in truth boring . It seems not to have changed in 500 years. . The Hall exterior is wonderful and that's as far as you should...

As you walk through the park the Hall looks fantastic - a castle like building atop a hill. Inside, It is mainly displays of stuffed animals created by previous generations but that doesn't detract from the splendour of the building. The cafe, located in the adjacent stable block, is good too.
