Wrest Park Reviews & Ratings
A national trust property so there is an entrance fee. Beautiful grounds with lots of paths and lovely water features, formal gardens and river. Could easily spend all day walking here. There are paths suitable for wheelchairs and buggies. Nice cafe and gift shop. Public toilets available. Plenty of parking
This was our 3rd visit to Wrest Park and we weren't disappointed! The House is lovely, although it's only a few rooms that are open to the public BUT there are other outbuildings as well as 91 acres of parkland to walk around (if you're feeling up to it!) so it doesn't matter too much! The grounds are beautifully kept and it was good to see a lot of conservation work and landscaping improvements being conducted. We'd visit more often if we lived nearer! Wrest Park is AMAZING!
Lots of parkland. You can wander without feeling enclosed. Plenty of room for a picnic and benches to sit on. Children can have a good run in safety, be aware lots of water features that are not fenced. Good parking space, plus cafe and children's play area, access to these can be gained without paying admission price.
Stunning historic house and beautiful gardens. Plenty of parking space, Fantastic play area for children from tots to early teens, natural wood play equipment not plastic, zip wire, large picnic area for your own picnic, large patio seating area for the cafe too. Absolutely loved it. The best bit? Being able to ride on the electric cart for a chauffeur driven ride round the grounds, listening to his anecdotes and depth of knowledge, was an absolute privilege.
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
