6 of us went and loved it! The parking was even free and to get 15% off in the shop too was amazing! The gardens were just beautiful 😍

Great place to visit and the voucher was really easy to use.

Mesmerising!

Quite a nice old house. Lots of history and a nice walk to the beach.

Fantastic place to visit. What wonderful views from the windows of the house. No wonder Albert and Victoria loved this place. My wife and I never got to see the private beach, Swiss Cottage and more of the grounds. However, we will see them when we visit again. I do agree that the gravel paths can be difficult to push a wheelchair. More disabled parking areas in the car park would have been appreciated. The staff at this historic house were very knowledgeable and helpful. The shop, plant stall and catering were all very good. Thank you CSSC for the free admission and discount on the lovely gifts we bought.

Full day out for myself and my son. He really enjoyed it, bring a picnic and lots of water as lots of walking involved

Plenty to see here with the house, gardens, private beach and many other points of interest. Recommend leaving yourself a good few hours to explore.

Great day out with so much to do. Great for kids with the beach and play area as well as a beautiful house. All amazingly kept in order by a brilliant charity

Easily filled the whole day. Very good staff. Some Gravel paths made it a little harder for the wheelchair, but the on site buses helped. (Swiss cottage by bumpy path only). Lovely pebble beach, could happily lose hours in the house).

Brilliant day out, lots to see in the house and plenty of grounds to explore. I highly recommend the local Mingella's ice cream down at the private beach.
