  • Visited for Garden show. Plenty of parking quite near Hyland House. The house is worth a look but not one of these hour long places to look around. The garden show was housed in the area immediately behind the house and despite a few areas being muddy from a previous days rain it was a lovely way to spend a morning. Will definitely be seeing what other events hosted here. Close access to A12 makes this easy to get to.
  • Great place to visit in all seasons. Perfect for taking the dog on long walk, or the family out for the day. You can walk through the woods, visit the play areas, enjoy the views and scenery, and even pay a visit to the house and Stables Centre where there is a cafe and crafts area. Always kept in pristine condition and even after the V Festival leaves a mess during Mid August, it's returned to its clean state within days.
  • Big park. Nice play area. We went to the pets and country show which didn't have a lot of shade on the hot, sunny day that we went.
  • Great place to go to. Old Manor house with huge grounds to explore. Take the kids to the adventure playground or to run around the woods. You can have a nice lunch at the cafe and have wonder through the old garden. Good place to take the dogs for a walk. Free car park. Very popular place to visit in the summer.
  • Great for letting the little ones and four legged ones run around .. nice play area..nice gardens
