Visited here last week while on holiday in Wales and found it on a leaflet i was really impressed by the walk up to the house. For £7.00 per adult for a guided tour of the house was excellent value for money and the garden's are well kept . The guide was so informative about each room and everyone was so friendly loved the greeting that we got from the three Dalmatian dogs would recommend a visit to this house nice little tea room as well which is reasonably priced

Wow is a perfect word for this little hidden gem. We visited on what turned out to be a lovely sunny September afternoon. The toured guild but Wyn was both entertaining, interesting and really made you feel like you belonged there and was a great little education lesson about the history of the families ( only down size was the other part of the party whispering and complaining about my husband asking question ) Upon this questioning it was nice to see a lovely picture of the 9th Baron and his family, sadly before his passing.
The house is beautiful and shares lots of memories and history artefacts.
Cute little tea room though sadly they had run out of cream cakes.
Beautiful Gardens and it was a pleasure to meet the 10th Baron Mr Langford and his spotty friends, even though our four legged friends was a bit scared.
Will be back as felt the more you tour this place the more you learn and see.
Thank you for opening your beautiful home.

Until a chat with an Egyptologist from Manchester we had never heard of this house, despite living just a few miles up the road. We were a little worried about walking from the car to the house because of the pack of savage Dalmatians noted in an earlier review, but more of these later.

The house only opens a couple of afternoons a week in the summer months, and as the family live there, as they have for over 700 years, you have to take a guided tour. We were taken round by Hazel, who was friendly and very knowledgable.

The house is fascinating. It is full of stuff collected by the family over their long residence, including things found in the locality, which apparently they have first claim on. These include a superb collection of arms and armour, pottery, and of course paintings, including a superb Stubbs and a Ramsey. The highlights are a couple of Egyptian sarcophagi, one of which holds a mummy, and other grave goods brought back in the 19th century by honeymooning ancestors of the family.

The three “fierce” Dalmatians found us just before we left, returning from their afternoon walk with the owner of the house, Lord Langford. They were incredibly friendly, sniffing and snorting, with tails wagging, around everyone in the room.

The gardens also look fascinating, but unfortunately we did not have time to explore them. We will certainly be back next year.

Did not even realise this gem was on my doorstep and only a few miles from where I live. I can't recommend it highly enough. A stunning house in beautiful grounds and an excellent guided tour of the house with the lovely and knowledgeable Margaret for only £ 7.00. Delightful tea room and all the staff were so nice. Give it a try and i promise you you won't be disappointed

Came across this place by chance when driving to Rhyl. So glad we decided to return once it was open. The house is beautiful and the tour, taken by Morag, was wonderful. The house is full of history and great stories brilliantly told by Morag. Who'd have thought visiting a beautiful house in North Wales you'd come face to face with an Egyptian Mummy! The gardens were very nice as well. We spent a very enjoyable afternoon here and would like to thank all the staff who were friendly and welcoming.
