The home of the Victorian Agar-Robartes family appears as if they have just popped out for tea.

After a devastating fire in 1881, the 17th-century house was refurbished in high-Victorian style, with all the latest mod cons. There are more than 50 rooms to explore and it is easy to see the contrasts between the servants’ life ‘downstairs’ and the elegant family rooms. The extensive garden is full of colour all year. The roses, herbaceous borders and dazzling parterre brighten any summer, and in spring the camellias, magnolias and rhododendrons are breathtaking. Note: limited group bookings in 2013, only four coaches per day due to extensive building work in the car park. Allow at least three hours for a visit - large garden and over 50 rooms to see in the house Groups must be split into groups of 10 to enter house, groups of 20 to visit garden.
