We are sorry to hear about your disappointment after your recent visit to Farnborough Hall but a few points must be clarified in your review. The gardens are open to the public as well as half of the house - the parts that are private...More

We visited here on one of the rare occasions the house is open to visitors. The National Trust has limited opening times for this amazing house and grounds, so it was well worth a detour on our way home from Banbury. Farnborough Hall is full...More

Farnborough Hall is still occupied and has restricted opening, so check it is open before committing. Essentially only the ground floor is open to visitors, plus the dome at the top of the staircase. Although limited it is worth visiting. The grounds are delightful with...More

Not many rooms open to view in the house as the family still live there, but the views from the grounds are fantastic. Interesting follies and statutes.

Farnborough Hall was a total let down for us, not much to see at all, 3 rooms and a staircase. Come to Banbury for Upton House which is excellent, but do not travel a great distance for Farnborough.

I visited Farnborough Hall after having visited Upton House as it was one of the very few times that it was open. The walk up to the obelisk is well worth it taking in the stunning views on the way but be careful if the...More

Beautiful grounds & setting & interesting house which is still lived in. Pleasant & helpful staff. The only downside is that is so infrequently open: would the National Trust offer owners such a deal these days?

The paths are quite good, but I think they would be very hard going for a wheelchair and some of the paths are quite steep in places and there are steps to negotiate. I hope this has been of help to you..
