Wrest Park Reviews & Ratings
Nice big gardens with flower beds and woods, with plenty of hidden gems to discover in the way of grottoes, follies, statues and ornamental lakes. House, while being large is largely shut off for events and weren't even able to go upstairs as they close it during the school holidays to prevent children running around up there. All in all could be better
We popped in for a play and some lunch with our little kiddos and to be honest this was just really not that great and I was really disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the house and grounds are wonderful and the space is great for kiddos to run around and explore. They do great events and would recommend these to anyone. The play area is great and has lots to do for little ones. However, the cafe was so disappointing and everywhere in the first area before you get to the house and grounds was just not looked after. The cafe queue is always so busy and slow. When we got our food the tables were not cleaned and food was still all over the floor from the previous people. Then we ordered a kid's meal for one of the kiddos and it was inedible we had to send it back. It really affected the day out so we didn't go to the house and to be honest won't go back again unless we bring a picnic. Would not recommend the cafe or eating there. Definitely bring your own food and enjoy the house and gardens as that is not to be missed
Lovely place to visit for a few hours on a nice day. Didn't see inside the house but the grounds are worth the trip by themselves. You can easily spend two hours walking them, and if you take a picnic there are plenty of places to stop and relax. The rose garden was very pretty and extremely fragrant.
Lovely country home to have a lovely restful walk and we had a picnic with the family under a tree. The vistas are amazing and the house looks stunning from the outside. There was a function on, so was unable to see inside the house. The only issue is that there are only toilets at the start and none within the grounds, so plan well.
Beautiful English heritage historical country estate. Great country mansion. Fabulous gardens with orangery and other buildings also lake.water features, cafe, shop and children's play area. Transport available to those who need help around the very large grounds. Information available from strategically placed guides. Good for walking, picnics. Dogs welcome but must be on leads. Great day out. Recommended
