A guided tour tour of the house is highly recommended. I always look forward to visiting houses that are still lived in as you get a better feel for the place. This property is no exception. Our guide was very knowledgable and engaged very well...More

I arrived around 5:25 after stopping at Hughenden. I was told that we couldn’t not go inside the house because the last entry was at 5. This is not listed anywhere on the NT site. We walked quickly around the outside of the house as...More

Stopped here for an hour or so after visiting Hughenden. Really lovely grounds and perfect for a stroll around the lake in the sunshine. No dogs or picnics allowed, which is a shame but I expect it’s to keep the grounds tidy. We had a...More

The house and park are well worth a visit. The vistas both of, and from the house are stunning. We took the guided tour of the ground floor of the house. The volunteer guides really know their stuff, we had a really interesting hour being...More

The property is owned by the National Trust and so it is unlikely that you can fly a drone and you would certainly need their permission as members of the public frequent the house and grounds.
