Made a booking for the caravan park but due to illness we needed to rearrange. I'm sorry to say that staff had absolutely no compassion or flexibility for exceptional circumstances and will just take your money. Will rethink before booking again.

House well worth a tour round. Also if you do Game of Thrones then this is a must do for film locations. The caravan park also run by the Trust is well run in a good location.

I visited in August, so can't comment about December crowds, but I can say that we took plenty of pictures within the house. I'm sure you could get someone to take a quick family picture, but I don't know if you'd be able... More
