“A place well worth visiting”
"We visited Basing House on a beautiful bright hot sunny day. It is a place with a lot of historical interest, We decided to look around on our own and pace ourselves, we don't like guided tours as they speed through and don't give you sufficient time to explore. The grounds were much larger than we thought they would be, and beautiful for a picnic which we had. We thought it would be nice for a half day visit, but we found more there to do than we originally thought and ended up staying all day. The house although a ruin was very interesting to look around. We enjoyed it very much, but I could not do as much as I would have liked to as I am physically disabled., but the parts I could not reach my family photographed for me and that made it really wonderful. It is a place that you need to have someone with you if you can not manage to get around easily. Well worth a second visit which we hope to do soon."
