Despite visiting many times we have never done a tour. Today we had a taster tour of the ground floor, our guide Mark was very informative, educational and funny. We learnt so much about the house and the family that when we walked around again it felt we were knew the family. The house is amazing and not fully restored which makes it feel more lived in. The gardens are as beautiful as ever.

We had a very good visit. The gardens have been well restored and there is a good set of signboards explaining their history and design. The house is excellent - being very much of one age, with original furniture and few alterations. The guides in the rooms were very helpful and informative. We had both lunch and tea in the cafe - a good selection of well prepared food

The gardens were especially lovely and very large with lots to explore, we were sadly a little early for the summer bedding but could see it planted up ready for a really gorgeous display (maybe best july/ august).
All in all we enjoyed our visit

What an amazing place to visit. We haven’t stopped talking about our day. Arrived at 11.30 on a wet Saturday morning in October. Enthusiastic team of staff and volunteers. 12 pm tour of the house with Reg who bought the house alive. Tasty pie lunch in cafe. And further explore of this Yorkshire treasure. The volunteers are the greatest asset of this property and their love of the property and its stories shine through. Gardens are spectacular. Worth every pound. Thank you for a memorable afternoon.

Lovely gardens with great topiary of various trees and shrubs, the gardens are fairly extensive and passed a couple of hours on a sunny late September day. The house is quite different from other old houses and has been painstakingly preserved, we were lucky to get on a guided tour which told us a lot of it's history. The tea rooms were a bit lackluster as our coffee was a bit weak and not very hot and the food choices seemed rather limited.
Make sure to check on house opening times and tour times or you might not get to look round
