Picked a great day to go. There was cider making, autumn leaf crown making and woodwork workshops. Lots to see and do other than the house itself. Weather was lovely so full use of garden and grounds was enjoyed. A full day's entertainment for all the family. 😆
I enjoyed this as one of the free open days with my mum (who is a member, saving me the £3 parking fee). Like most NT properties, I begrudge spending a large entry fee until I know whether it is worth it. I wouldn't mind paying a small entry fee and giving a donation based on how long I spend there and how much I enjoyed my visit. The staff/volunteers were excellent, and this was a nice way to spend an hour or two.
The house and gardens are worth a visit. The house itself is a notable Robert Adam design and is spectacular inside. There is a garden attached to the house and larger parklands nearby. Both are worth a visit, the latter going right down to the Plymouth estuary.
Amazing house with a large array of paintings, if you're interested in art history you should visit here. There are beautiful gardens and it's great for walking. I would also recommend the traditional tea room, enjoy being treated like Victorian gentry for a few minutes.
My 6 year old loved the I spy sticker game they gave her, to spot things like a squirrel and a fern and stick them on her own map. There was also a bingo sticker game in the house to spot things like a horse in a painting in a certain room that kept her (and me) busy, and she got to try out croquet in the garden, and there's a playground out the front. She also got to buy her own cup of duck food to feed the ducks 😅. The cafe and gift shop are the price you'd expect from a national trust house, but there is a lovely selection of things in the shop. And little guides in every room in the house to explain what everything is.
