  • Grey's Court is a treasure for those in the area. I wouldn't travel hours for it as there are so many lovely places to visit in England, but I'm so glad to have Grey's in my area. The location is beautiful with lots of places to lie out on a blanket, the house is lovely and importantly - liveable. You can see yourself here and appreciate the home, it's not a relic and I love the kitchen! The tea room also have excellent food. We go every month or so to watch the changes in the beautiful gardens.
  • Lots of bendy roads to navigate before you can get here. Big car park and overflow car park too. Soon after I moved away from the car park, mobile reception was lost. The estate is not huge like some other NT properties, but still long walks are possible. The mansion itself is not that big. It has changed hands many times in its long history. The last owner acquired it in the 1930s and it eventually passed to the NT. The interior is not that luxurious but there are some nice views from some of the rooms. Some parts of the building look like a fortified castle. The mansion itself wouldn't need more than 20 mins to look around unless you want to have long chats with volunteers manning the rooms. I found that two of the volunteers were not that well clued up about the history. For example, they couldn't tell me why one of the buildings is called Cromwellian Building. There is a good-size tea room and seating outside too. Lunch is between 12 & 2.30pm, so make sure you get in on time. I have to say that the coffee at this NT property was not as tasty as those I have had at many of their other estates.
  • This is a lovely NT site and has great dog walks as well. Dogs not allowed near main house etc which is a shame. Cafe and shop very good.
  • I can understand why visitors are not able to enter the site before the opening time, 10 am, but not unlocking the car park before 10 am is odd. We arrived early so we could park up and read the papers before 10 am entry but all we did was block the road while we waited for the car park gate to be opened, while staff were setting up the entry office. It's a pity that the "lawn" is now off limits for picnics and children to play. Last year it was a pleasure to see those activities. It's hardly Oxbridge college lawn. The notices now seem a bit intimidating, no food and drink here, no dogs there, shut the gate, don't disturb the water. It's a nice venue but it could be a bit more user friendly.
  • Lovely house and gardens. Scenic views. Expensive food though.
