Beautiful house and grounds, not too strenuous but very relaxing to walk around. Nice to see an unfurnished house as it allows you to use your imagination. Well done national trust.

A great venue. Stunning gardens mixing beautiful planting with original walls, iron gates and old charm of cow sheds. Old and newer well combined. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore. The house is surprisingly cosy for its size with an interesting story

We enjoy this place all year around with amazing Gertrude Jekyl gardens. Lovely lunches with changing menus in lovely rooms. Easy parking and nice dog walking
