A stunning site, the House, Gardens and Grounds are well maintained and managed by English Heritage. The House is not always open, so check timings before travel. Perhaps unlike many National Trust properties, the House has a number of unfurnished rooms so it may be best to get a guide book to fully appreciate their original function. There was no guided tour available at the time of our visit, so you could just look around the rooms at your own pace and leisure. Staff were located throughout to answer any questions. The gardens and grounds are extensive and as it was during school holidays, special interests were provided for children. The stable block is still in use and you can visit the horses. There is also a children's play area nearby. This is a good day out, weather dependant for optimum enjoyment.
