This is the house that just keeps giving. There is so much of the original house and it's contents still in tact that it feels almost lived in. The kitchens are the best part for me, you really get a sense of how the house...More

We focused on the main house and grounds, but were intrigued by the number of activities and walking trails on offer on the estate at large. The gardens are fabulous with some great guides to the plants you can see. We spent a good while...More

We visited whilst holidaying in Cornwall. My 1 year old son loved the friendly cows. The architecture of the house and gatehouse is spectacular. We will return to visit more of the grounds next time we're in Cornwall.

We visited at the end of October as it was one of the few NT properties that stay open for the winter. It was our first visit but apparently they have changed the parking and the car park is quite a way from the house...More

Stopped in for a cream tea and were pleasantly surprised to find the house was still open. The house is a walk down the driveway from reception and there are over fifty rooms so you need at least 1.5 hours to visit. Rebuilt in 1881...More
