This fifty-five minute DVD seems to date from the 1990s. It covers eight National Trust properties: 1. Kingston Lacy (Dorset); 2. St Michael's Mount (Cornwall); 3. Tatton Park (Cheshire); 4. Fountains Abbey (Yorkshire); 5. Powis Castle (Wales); 6. Stourhead (Wiltshire); 7. Chartwell (Kent); and 8. Polesden Lacey (Surrey). Note the focus on the southern counties of England. But some associated properties are also featured. Thus Kingston Lacy also include Corfe Castle, and Fountains Abbey also has room for Fountains Hall and Studley Royal.

Narrated by actor Robert Hardy, fifty-five minutes can only provide an introduction to these properties, but we see enough of the interiors with their paintings and furnishings to give us a flavour of each place. Gardens are also included, of course. It's all professionally shot and edited if a little bland, but has its place as a souvenir of places visited in the past or as inspiration for somewhere to visit in the future.

I had previously greatly enjoyed visiting Lanhydrock, Polesden Lacey, St Michael's Mount and Chartwell on a visit to UK (I live in New Zealand and belong to the New Zealand Historic Places Trust which is affiliated to the National Trust)

Through this fascinating documentary, I was able to view (albeit "on film") the other National Trust properties.

The documentary was well filmed and the choice of presenter was excellent. Robert Hardy did a great job - up to his usual high standard.

We were somewhat disappointed when viewing this disc. The photography is good but the overall enjoyment is marred by the commentary and editing.

Unfortunately, Treasures of the Trust was not compatible with US disc standards and would not play!So it is impossible for me to rate the item.

i found this dvd to be a lil long in the mouth.
The houses are not more than superficial talked about, and a shame that the same houses already are on the national heritage box, and there they are shown to you for about 50 minutes.
So, oke i have it, but had i known i wouldnt have bought it.

Robert Hardy is a perfect narrator for this medley of places. Excellent photography. If this is your sort of thing - buy it!
