Really interesting visit. The guides in the rooms were knowledgeable and easy to listen to. Very reasonable entrance price. We didn't visit the farms but the house itself was lovely.

The grounds are absolutely spectacular and really well maintained. The tulips are in full bloom and added to the spectacle set against the stone house and lush green grass. The fire escape especially built for the Queen is clearly visible. We spent time on the outside and did not venture into the house. There are many paths to walk , down to the lake or to the Garden centre where there are restrooms and a cafe. The gardens at the cafe are magnificent Parking is plentiful
The shop is super. You can watch the pottery being made and there’s an excellent collection of gifts - clothes, books, sweets, trinkets, family crests, pottery, photographs, jewellery, tweeds, woollens… The toilets are usually clean. The cafe would be great but it stops serving hot food at 3pm. They could make a killing by extending that as the place is hiving until late during the summer months. The grounds are immaculate and the views are stunning. Car parking isn’t too bad. Well worth a stop off.
