  • We visited primarily to walk through the gardens. Whilst pleasant, they are not the most impressive, but the house itself is very much so and gives a great backdrop to many of the photographs I took d...  more »

  • Excellent place for a summer family picnic. Great grounds, playground and adventure park. Not crazy busy which makes it even better. Not cheap c £45 for a family (to go to the park) but a lovely place.
  • This is a really beautiful and expansive place with so much to do. There's a large adventure playground which includes: a bouncy castle, several swings, lots of climbing frames and bars, a splash park type area, wooden train and a large fort playground which was great. The playground area caters for all ages. The gardens are exceptionally beautiful and we'll kept, within is a small maze which is only a couple of feet high. This leads on to the dinosaur trail which is great with plenty of dinosaurs and information. The cafe has plenty of food and drinks choices but it was in the expensive side. Also, the hut that serves icecream and hot drinks only took cash when I visited. This is definitely an all day event and you won't run out of things to do or see. My 5 and 3 year old had a great time and so did I.
  • Great place to visit. Lovely gardens and house. Play fort for the kids also dinosaur park. Restaurant for meals and drinks. Rooms can be hired for events.
  • Interesting house and lovely gardens. Good value for money. Low star rating is due to the inadequate toilet facilities. Just one set of women's toilets with only four cubicles is insufficient. The cafe could be improved with a wider selection of food.
  • We went for the flower show this year, £34 for the family access to go and see businesses selling gardening equipments and plants! You don't even get the access to the house which is an extra £3.50 per person. However the gardens and the dinosaurs walk are nice but Don't expect to see a high level of presentation with regards to the "flower show" if you've been to Hampton court flower show for instance.
