  • A lovely place. Nice gardens and a new addition of a free ferry ride across the lake. Great climbing frame for bigger kids. However, it is really quite expensive. Two adults and a four year old is around £30!!! So although it's a nice afternoon out and there's a fair bit to see - penguins, donkeys etc, I really don't feel it's worth the money.

  • Good place to visit it in most weathers (except rain). There is a large range of activities for all ages. They seem to be constantly improving accessibility and the estate itself. The most recent addition is a new shuttle to replace the old one for people who walked or caught a bus there. They also will shuttle you around if you need for no extra cost. My favourite new addition is a nice chain ferry across the lake to the walled garden. While I am young fit and healthy it's quite nice to take in the sights as you go across the lake.

  • Great house to have a noesy around. Lovely gardens too, extensive. Boat trips, island, bird garden with all kinds of birds to look at. Amazing play area for the kids too. You can easy spend an entire afternoon or more here and staff are friendly and there's a cafe (2 actually) with seats outside with a beautiful view of the garden and landscape. Totally recommend a visit.

  • Lovely to step back in time. Beautiful house and grounds. Can’t wait to see Christmas decorations again and enjoy coffee and cake on the balcony. Just love this place A membership very well worth having or gifting. Christmas coming up or even birthdays

  • The house itself (not the Below Stairs section, which is good in its own right) is grand and perhaps bigger than you'd expect. The cafe near the penguins does really good food at a reasonable price. I'd also recommend getting the ferry across to the walled garden but but walking back around via the Himalayan garden.
