Pollok House And Garden, Glasgow Reviews
A lovely nature park, great for relaxing walks in the fresh Scottish air. Lovely flowers and woodlands to be explored. Great coffee shop too! Interesting cakes to be had, highly recommend the avocado courgette concoction. Definitely a must see for those visiting Glasgow, be prepared to spend a relaxing afternoon in this natural treasure.
This is the best old house in Scotland. With art exhibits, traditional furniture and expert staff, all guests are impressed. The grounds and gardens are also vast and wide with Hairy Coos roaming many fields. The only thing I’d like more of is Pollock and Maxwell tartans, crests and other traditional clan items for purchase. All hail the Pollock and Maxwell clans.
Pollock house and gardens is such a beautiful, pleasant and peaceful place. Of course, this is National Trust site so was really well maintained, clean and looked after. We had originally planned to see the gardens, the house, the galleries and a special visit to see the Highland coos in one trip, but ended up deciding to split it up over several visits. This change in plan came about due to the remarkable weather, and quite stunning gardens and woodlands. You almost felt like child again, exploring nooks and crannies, discovering secret dens and door ways. Everything was so well maintained and looked after, we walked around for a good couple of hours. The wee cafe is also fascinating with its old world look and feel, the staff were so pleasant and happy and the food on offer was exactly what you'd hope and want from this sort of place. I had a top notch ploughmans lunch, and my wife had a filling brie and bacon seeded roll. We went to see the cows too... (this was my favourite bit... I swear to god, someone brushes their fringes in the morning). Well the outside was enough to fill our day, especially with a little sun bathing under a tree by the river and cant wait to return to see the galleries and inside Pollock House itself.
Lovely park with many places to walk. Well kept and a great place for kids, as they have lots of gardens and a fairy garden. My dog had a great time too!
Visited for the Escape Room and also on a later occasion for Mrs Claus. Both were well run. The Escape Room is full of genuinely interesting historical artefacts. The Mrs Claus treasure hunt was lovely and the Christmas film theme meant that all the rooms looked superb and so festive. Mrs Claus herself was also great and dealt well with a shy 4 year old! The gift shop is good and any staff I came across were friendly and helpful.
