Visited here for lights aglow event - how magical!! Whole beautiful gardens lit up spectacular!!! Mesmerising! We had mulled wine and mince pies in garden. Then went round this fantastic house. What a privilege! Amazing! Will come again in day to see the gardens in daylight

Really interesting house, shown as a place you could imagine living in - unlike some older piles. Grounds are superb - even in November. Hard to believe NT bought it for a stretch of Coast Path and didn't think it worth opening estate to public initially.

Really nice 1920s house and the gardens are lovely with a stroll down towards the sea, though it's a bit of a climb coming back. Nice coffee shop there too. Overall, a very good place to visit.

Its all been said before really, a stunning 1920's Arts and Crafts residence in equally stunning countryside. Since last visit about 5 years ago visiting experience improved with more rooms open and greater history information. The story of their only son who was killed aged 21 in a road traffic accident in Switzerland is particularly poignant and thereafter contributed to... More

This is a truly stunning property showing life in a bygone era. The house is set in beautiful grounds which lead down to the sea. We were advised to tour the house from the upstairs first where there is a room full of history and information. The final room is the sitting room and there was a pianist playing the... More

A modest house well presented by the National Trust, furnishings are of the period and some lovely art nouveau and Art Deco interior features. Interesting family history of the D'Oyley Carte family is well presented at the start of the tour. The extensive valley garden would be glorious in sunny weather . I would not hesitate returning.

We were so impressed with this 1920's Art Deco style house - each room has been carefully finished using as many original items as possible. The gardens are equally impressive especially with the Autumn coloured leaves and surprised to see so many plants still in flower. The cafe serves some lovely food and staff throughout were really helpful. Will definitely... More
