What a pleasure it was to visit this wonderful place. The gardens are magnificent, there is a lake with black Swans in it, just wonderful to see. The house is wonderful and you could imagine Mr. Churchill being there. Beautifully maintained by the National Trust. Sir Winston Churchill was a prolific painter and his artist studio is separate from the house. It was amazing to see all his paintings. What an interesting and brilliant place to visit. Highly recommended.
I feel that I cannot adequately describe this beautiful, beautiful house. It combines the grandeur of a country mansion with the wonderful warmth of a much loved family home. The estate provides many insights into the life of Winston Churchill and even for those not interested in the great man (?!!) the house, grounds and gardens are glorious.
