However exciting a life the previous residents of the hall may have led, what you have here is effectively a ruin - an empty shell. So it’s not very exciting by usual National Trust standards, and the small gardens are equally uninspiring. Maybe the West...More

We found ourselves here for a day when out at the coast. When you drive along the road and this building appears from behind the trees you can't not be bowled over.

This is not the best National Trust property we visited. It needs significant investment to upgrade all the facilities. The exhibits in the servant quarters need more labels and the rooms more description boards. The main house may be a ruin after the fire damage...More

Great remnants of a a local business mans house - chapel just been restored so public can now enter to view. Several walks from the property make it an ideal place to visit and roam.

Great place to visit if you’re interested in heritage buildings and social history. Friendly and welcoming with helpful staff. The people welcoming visitors to the parish church were equally fantastic, helpful and friendly.

I would say the same. Alternatively there maybe a number you can ring if you go onto their eb page. I've recently watched The Landmark trust programme and think it should be restored.
