I came for the first time with my family including two young daughters ages 11 & 4. The grounds and gardens are beautiful and the house really interesting to walk round. Most rooms are empty so no valuables for children to risk breaking either!

It is essential to do the guided tour to fully appreciate the history both ancient and more modern of this property.
Gardens are superb also.
