Is expensive if not a National Trust member but enjoyable way to pass a few hours. House is interesting and the parkland and gardens are a good walk. Very busy.

Went in the half term with the grandchildren. A few activities on in the gardens. They just love the play area in the woodland. Always plenty of parking and the grounds kept immaculate.

Regular afternoon stroll around the parkland. Staff friendly and helpful. Coffee shop can be a bit of a nightmare as it is busy at peak times. We are NT members so enjoy the benefit of free parking and entry.

Some parts of the grounds are free - you pay to walk in the area nearest the house where footpaths lead to the lake and it's well worth doing. There are large areas though that are free.
