Your visit


Over a century ago, the house and grounds were created to delight and surprise the small circle of Baron Ferdinand's friends. We now welcome thousands of visitors each year who come to appreciate the exceptional architecture, art collections and gardens.

Now that the main season is over, the house team will be working hard to ‘put the house to bed’ for the winter. Rooms are meticulously cleaned and packed away, ready for essential conservation work to take place.
