Absolutely stunning place. We’re not National Trust members, we have two teens & live in central London but we’re all blown away by the place - beautiful landscapes, colours & reflections. Plan to go back in the autumn

We walked around here on a rainy Saturday afternoon. Despite the rain it was lovely, the bluebells were just past their next and the azaleas superb. The walks are well laid out and easy to follow. Beautiful tress that will look spectacular come the autumn...More

This place is a beautiful collection of trees and shrubs with lakes to sit by and just breath in the clean air and chill. Autumn is something else!

What nice walk and place to visit for a Sunday afternoon. Be prepared to do some walking and take your camera. Really enjoyed the quiet walks and big area to just get lost in. Bluebells all over the place. Well worth the visit.

On an early Spring visit the site was perhaps not at it’s best. Heavy rain had made the ground very muddy and walking was difficult. The site is very undulating with some quite steep steps and the longer walks are quite challenging. National Trust reception,...More
