The food is delicious and a lot of it includes fresh vegetables from the garden. All money spent there supports the trust and there is WiFi.

Turned with grandchildren and a dog. We'd checked the website and were sure dogs were allowed in the grounds only. But a snobbish woman on the gate barked, louder than our dog could, that they were banned. She was very rude and abrupt though the...More

We've visited this place twice. Undoubtedly a fine house inside and out and lovely gardens, there is something lacking in the atmosphere. A downside is parking is a good walk away from the entrance. Once inside the grounds there are some very interesting cobbled ateas,...More

The house is very well presented. You view the main house then go around the side to view the downstairs area. There was a lovely lady making cakes. The grounds are extensive, nice for a picnic. With a lovely restaurant in the walled kitchen garden....More

I don't know what sections of the house were used in the John Carter film but i do know that the total cost of entering the property is £12.20 for an adult and £30.50 for a family. Enjoy you visit!
