Catch a glimpse of Victorian life at this 'conserved as found' country house. It survived with remarkably few changes until taken on by English Heritage in 1990. The gardens have been restored, and the faded and worn interiors gently conserved, telling the story of the changing fortunes of the people who lived and worked here. Wander the many rooms of the house, roam the gorgeous gardens, stop for tea in the tearoom, and discover the recently restored game larder. We are also happy to announce that our improved and updated play area is now ready for you and your family to enjoy.
