  • Great day out. Under 12 adventure playground is one of legends. Capability Brown landscaped grounds. Go early to make the most of your door. Grotto is a good experience for kids to challenge their fear of the dark.
  • As a season ticket holder this is a great place for a whole day and afternoon or morning. The play park is superb as is the walk around lake and water falls. A great day out for all the family.
  • A refined and luxurious hotel. We were sipping cocktails, overlooking a herd of deer with flocks of swans and geese only a stone's throw away across the lawn. We walked around the expansive grounds, which we seemed to have all to ourselves. Rolling lawns, groves of trees, a secluded waterfall, an expansive lake. Just the place for a picturesque and romantic weekend getaway.
  • Went to a Tractor Ted event here and will definitely return. Even without he event there is enough here to spend a full day with the kids. Super amazing adventure park with death slide, little farm with animal experiences, a lakeside walk with a waterfall. Indoor soft play included on site in case of rain!
  • Big open country house, with a massive play area and a smaller side play area. It's also got a little farm (beware if this is what you're going for, it's only fifteen minutes of content) and the old estate house. It's a well kept, great example of an English country house residence. Great for a family day out.
