My wife and I took two friends to visit this lovely place. The scenery is absolutely stunning. The house is very interesting and the staff were very informative. Walk all the way around the lake and take in the beautiful scenery.

Wow. What a place. The gardens are amazing. We were lucky enough to be there when the rhododendrons were out but even without those it would still be beautiful. The lake, the 'follies', the birds, he trees - magical. The house is also well worth...More

While the gardens weren't open due to gale force winds, the house well and truly made up for this. I loved the notes from Lady Hoare's poignant diary, and the library was amazing! We were lucky that the sun did shine for our entrance into...More
