In an effort to use our National Trust membership we visited this house and gardens. It is a former hunting lodge owned by the de Rothschilds. The house contained paintings that included works by Gainsborough, Reynolds and Stubbs. There is a variety of oriental porcelain and rare 18th century English and French furniture. We enjoyed the gardens which were more varied in style and extensive than we had realised (30 acres).
A wander around the house and grounds followed by tea and delicious carrot cake was a relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
