  • Went too cafe this morning for breakfast, cost £20, biggest waste of money ever, breakfast came out in a polystyrene box, had wooden knife and fork that broke whilst eating the breakfast as it was roc...  more »
  • Free parking at present, rumours of bringing in charges soon which is disappointing. Brilliant for dog walking or for young children to play on the fortress. Lovely family park with a fab coffee shop  more »
  • I enjoy bringing my 2 year old here to enjoy the play areas. There's a beautiful garden with a duck pond near the house. The food from the cafe is OK but the service can be a little abrupt at times.  more »

  • Hylands has an excellent playground with sensory elements, dedicated parking with disabled spaces, and toilets and a cafe just outside. Coupled with the extensive grounds of the house offering plenty of space for ball games, Frisbee or just running around, it's a great venue for a picnic or family day out.
  • I am not too active but the extensive walks available in the park, as well as the cafes and gift shop by the house, make for a very enjoyable time. The shop and cafes/restaurants are still open even when the wedding venue is in use.
  • been here many times and this was my first step inside. Unfortunately for a funeral. very pleasant , good spread and nice bar staff albeit a wee bit slow, but then we were not in any rush.
  • A nice park to have a walk, and get some fresh air! Hylands park has free parking and a nice cafe that offers good food/coffee.
  • Vast and tranquil open space. Host to various events such as "V". Great for picnics and long walks and great for kids.
