      This was a near perfect day out. We got stuck in traffic and missed our entry slot. I phoned the house and they were aware of the problem. Told us not to worry and promised to get us in as soon as they could. This set the tone for the day. Everyone was so helpful, and pleasant to deal with. The Christmas decorations were just stunning and each room came up with different ideas. The stewards were very knowledgeable and freely gave us info about the decorating process. There was a short queue to get into the restaurant. The staff were not fazed by my onion allergy and assisted me to choose my food. The turkey cobs were really delicious. We ended our day at the farm shop with a great cup of coffee and goodies to take home.

      Absolutely stunning grounds and House. We had such an amazing day with the added bonus of visiting the Christmas Market. The Market was really busy which made it difficult to actually visit most of the stalls but we did get some really special pieces to take home which made it all worth it.Everyone we encountered were really friendly and helpful. Will definitely love to visit again.

      Beautiful place to visit only walked in the grounds and went into the farm shop which is jammed with so many fresh and locally made produce its amazing, bit more expensive, but worth it. Massive range to choose from. The Cafe's are lovely food smelled and look delicious and luxurious. The toilets alone are very different, they are all mirrored in and out of the cubicles in gold. They are very clean and neat. The grounds are vast and beautiful, there are picnic areas, we took a picnic, plenty of Sheep wandering around, you need to take care where you walk and drive. They also have Deer and Cows. There are private gardens that you can pay to look round and also the house which will cost you a fee. They had a Man on Fire exhibition in the grounds, these were from America. They had a small good fair there where you could sample food which is sold in the Farm Shop. Good place to go to take your dog, but must be kept on their lead. Plenty of security staff around to keep eye on things. Wonderful place to take kids and wear them out, there's a lovely little river to watch the ducks. It's a lovely day out especially if the sun is out, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

      Such a grand stately home with tons of arts displays complimenting the historical pieces. Love the vast garden, with different sites of scenery, not enough to see them all in a day. Kids love the farm yard and adventure playground. I would love to go there again with the 50% off voucher. Can easily spend a lovely day out with family here.

      The grounds are huge with plenty of places to see and things to do. The main house is well worth a visit if you haven't been in before and kids have their own dedicated entertainment area. Ample parking with nice gift shops, cafés and restaurants. A good choice for families and couples alike.

      Spent the entire day within the gardens and estate park. The gardens are beautiful, as you would expect from Capability Brown, with amazing landscaping and wonderful specimen trees and planting. Had lunch in the Stables, and then enjoyed the sculptures and installations currently exhibited in the park. Well worth the entry fee, and would certainly visit again. Very highly recommended.

      Great place to visit & explore. The sculptures on display were great. Radical Horizons exhibition.Parking was reasonable and plenty to do just paying for parking. Unless you have a full day to explore I wouldn't pay to go in the house/gardens.We will be back for a full visit.

      Fabulous day out, beautiful gardens and the maze was so much fun. We thought it was going to be easy but…nope 🙂 we had a duck come sit with us by the river while we had coffee which was lovely. The sculptures are amazing. The coal tunnel in the rockery is an interesting walk, makes you feel like a child in an adventure.
