Like most national trust places great for a day out no matter what age you are. The guides here really know their jobs and are very informative indeed. Well done to one and all.

Booked a table for the Christmas lunch. We received a warm welcome. The meals overall were good if not a slightly odd selection. The fish mouse was very good whilst the onion soup had a large soggy croton and the mackerel salad had little mackerel....More
