  • Lovely walks around forty Hall, very good nature trails and lake, very dog friendly. Lovely tea rooms and a great farm shop. I walk here with the kids as well as the dogs. Great family day out.

  • Small museum - an hour at most. Gardens of the house are sometimes closed for private functions. The land around the house is a beautiful mix of open spaces, thick woodland and lakes. Very nice walks with few people - great!
  • Fantastic day out. The garden is charming; a great place where to stroll or to sit down while chatting with friends and family.
  • Lovely grounds and wonderful area. But. The cafe has not improved. The cakes are bland and the service is very slow. We were given drinks in paper cups claiming they were busy. Well, yes it was busy but there are still plenty if staff and it was still only around 70% of full capacity.
  • Used to adore this place as a child, however now, very sadly, it's is let down badly by the service in the cafè. Seems they have an issue with the disabled!
  • This is a fabulous Tudor mansion. I've really enjoyed visiting here, for business meetings and pleasure. The cafe is really fab too - glad they've put their earlier problems behind them.
