Very cosy with the wood panelling giving a dark effect.As it was a overcast and rainy day could have done with better lighting though.Made it difficult to view some of the paintings.Friendly guides and very interesting textiles exhibition.My only gripe is the parking area is...More
Whenever we are in the Burnley area we always pay a visit. There is always a changing display of embroidery and the staff are very helpful. When closed the grounds are very nice to walk around. We are back there next week.
Didn’t seem to be many rooms open to the public, but very interesting overall. Staff a bit stand offish apart from the lovely lady in the drawing room, who was very knowledgeable about the decorations. The cafe was good, with nice coffee and cakes. Not...More

We enjoyed a lovely walk through the woodland within the grounds before returning to the well...More

We weren’t blessed by the weather today. The forecast of light showers turned into frequent deluges! This may have influenced the mood of the visitors but the consensus was “a great house with lots of potential spoiled by grumpy visitors and some rude volunteers”
You can just walk around here,or visit the hall.
Well looked after.You can visit the the needlework which is brilliant.
A tea shop to stop and have a drink or a sandwhich.
Good to visit when they have an show,or fete or an exhibition.
Lovely peaceful setting of this well maintained house with beautiful hedged parterre garden and manicured lawns which are timeless.Inside the house are all original tudor ceilings and well funished.Many portait paintings adding charm. Stunning needlework everywhere adds to the joy of visiting this National Trust...More
