One of the most fascinating houses in Britain, not least because of the unusually close relationship that existed between the family of the house and their servants.
The beautiful and evocative range of outbuildings includes kitchen, laundry, bake house, stables, sawmill, smithy and joiner's shop, while the stunning state rooms display most of their original 18th and 19th century furniture and furnishings, including some exquisite Chinese wallpaper.
The large walled garden has been restored to its 18th century formal design and has a Victorian parterre and yew walk. It also contains the National Collection of Ivies. There is an extensive park with woodland walks.
Due to the extreme fragility of their contents, the Tapestry and Small Chinese Rooms are open Wed and Sat only. Most rooms have no electric light, visitors wishing to make a close study of pictures and textiles should avoid dull days.
