National Trust Property full of history. Knowledgeable friendly staff, and you can sit on the furniture! A good stopping off point if you are travelling to mid Wales.

Although in place it needs a little TLC this is worth a visit and not too big. The building is home to many painting and curios and on two floors. It has been home to the same family for over 900 years. There are stables...More

An interesting house steeped in history (parts of the upstairs have been turned into appartments, lived in by the family). The National Trust guides were very helpful and informative. Good selection of well signed walks, looking forward to our next visit.

The advertising for this National Trust venue focusses heavily on the parkland and garden, so we weren't expecting much of the house. But it was brilliant! There are no 'roped off' areas, but instead you can sit on chairs (but not the ones with a...More
