This visit was primarily to view the house. We were not disappointed as we were able to take advantage of the Grand Tour which included some additional rooms and art works. The guide knew her stuff and advised that there were special art lovers tours for those who wished a more in depth experience. The house caters well for those with mobility issues. Folding stools were available to take round with you. There was also a stairlift between floors. Loved the furniture and the amazing restoration work.
Also visited the cafe which has a good basic menu. Opting for the soup and sandwich combo, the soup was over salty and the sandwiches (though fresh) lacked any butter or spread so the filling had a bit of a tendency to land in ones lap!. There is also a short ramp, between the servery and one of the sitting areas, which proved rather slippery when wet. Most folk come by car and if you have mobility issues, you can park by the visitor centre . You can also be dropped off at the house itself. This wasn't apparent by signage but, on enquiry, was explained by the pleasant staff member in the visitor centre.
