Part of English Heritage but well worth the Admission if you are not a Member. The Mansion is a delight with excellent decor and loads of history. Excellent mobile audio facilities to guide you though the house and gardens.

We visited here last Sunday and had a lovely time wandering round the huge gardens and the house, there are plenty of sculptures to look at and well kept gardens. Lots of photo opportunities I didn’t expect it to be as big as it was!...More

We had a great night at the Van Morrison gig. Only complaint is the question to get in. Missed 1st act as trapped on the main road for best part off hour and half. Pretty setting. A bugger to get in on events.

Had a lovely time walking around the vast gardens which are beautiful but did not realise that the house is not furnished, just empty rooms. We could not go upstairs as closed so just walked around the few rooms downstairs. Wasn’t what I expected.
