Farnborough Hall was a total let down for us, not much to see at all, 3 rooms and a staircase. Come to Banbury for Upton House which is excellent, but do not travel a great distance for Farnborough.
I visited Farnborough Hall after having visited Upton House as it was one of the very few times that it was open. The walk up to the obelisk is well worth it taking in the stunning views on the way but be careful if the grass has been cut recently as the cut grass is left behind. As the day... 更多
Came here on the way home from another property. If you aren't an NT member you should know it costs £6.50 each and you only get to go in three rooms and there property is only open occasionally. The grounds are quite pleasant to walk around but don't take long. As NT members we enjoyed our visit but won't be... 更多
Beautiful grounds & setting & interesting house which is still lived in. Pleasant & helpful staff. The only downside is that is so infrequently open: would the National Trust offer owners such a deal these days?
A lovely stately home with a small selection of rooms open for viewing and a small coffee shop. However the garden offers spectacular views and Walks. A lovely lake with birds to look at nearby too! A real treat overall in regards to the garden and a fantastic spot for a picnic. Just check on the national trust app for... 更多
An enchanting house with sweeping lawns and lovely gardens. It isn't open very often, and even then there are only a few rooms on view. I do sometimes wonder how much the upkeep of such places costs the National Trust and whether some arrangements it has aren't just a way for families to continue living in beautiful surroundings at the... 更多
I'm a huge National Trust fan and although we enjoyed a nice stroll around the grounds, Farnborough Hall is no match for other National Trust properties. The property is only open at certain times and then only a very small part of it. The items on display are accompanied by hand scrawled notes, I presume by an older/past member of... 更多
Having finally managed to schedule a visit on one of the few days the property is open we were surprised to find that out that the property was still lived in, meaning that only parts of it are open to the public. What you can see of the house is nice, particularly the stairway and skylight. The gardens and walk... 更多
I love this place. The house has the feel of National Trust house and gardens. The house though is only part of the story. The lake, set in the in a small word is tranquility itself. When I sit here I remember my grandmother who sat here drawing and later imaged me by the lake. She painted a solitary person... 更多
A pleasant house to visit on the few days it is open due to still being lived in. You do get a lovely feeling of a lived in home in the few downstairs rooms that are open. The gardens have great views over the countryside and are a really nice place to walk and spend an hour or two.
