The house is beautiful and the art & furnishings collection was “saved” by HRH the Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesey in 2007 from being split up and sold and in addition to the fabulous Chippendale furniture you can also view a collection of Prince Charles’ own watercolour paintings.
A tour of the house costs £8.50 pp but we splashed out and took the one and a half hour Grand Tour for £12.50 pp and it was wonderful. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and witty and talked the entire time (feat of memory too).
They’re busy working on extending the grounds and there is a coffee shop too. Why not put it on your Top 10 list too?
