Lovely walk along the river children enjoyed it. Gardens are well kept and interesting. The house was too much money for us all to go in so we didn't bother. Cafe was nice but not enough sitting on busy periods.

Yes it’s open bank holiday. If you have a English heritage membership it’s free otherwise you pay when you get to the main House. Gardens are free and greenhouse but you also pay to see the eagles,
