A good one you're missing is Dyrham Park, near Bath. On the Cotswold Way too if you want to combine it with a walk!
Scotney Castle in Kent is well worth a visit
I'd recommend Newark Park near Wotton under Edge, particularly now for the snowdrops.
I do urge you to go to Blickling next time you're in Norfolk. It's lovely. Also, and a bit closer to home, Alfriston Clergy House in East Sussex is worth a visit, even if only because it's the NT's first building.
I'd recommend the ruins of Hailes Abbey (Gloucs), partly because if you pick the right day you can arrive by heritage DMU at the restored Hayles (sic) Abbey station about a mile away. Although owned by the National Trust and giving members the usual free admission, I see it's not in the NT Handbook, possibly because it's run by English Heritage. It is on the NT website, though they don't seem to regard a heritage railway as public transport and don't mention the station.
Have you classed Brownsea Island as a building or a garden?
Never going back to a NT place after they attempted to screw my wife out of her redundancy pay during the pandemic. A quick call to ACAS and the NT backed down. Arguing over £1k when they've thrown someone's life in the air and waste millions on stock in the shops - pathetic
Shocked you haven't been to the George...

dg interrupts: I have.
