    An amazing ruin of an enormous house which the owner just left and moved to Norfolk! It must have been like a palace in the area. Dovecote - splendid but it would be super if there were a window in th...  more »

    This is a pleasurable walk, in a quaint village with a fine pub. The hall is in poor repair, understandable considering it's age but it is in nice grounds and plenty of places for kids to hide and pla...  more »

    I went here with some English friends. It was a lovely walk down to the ruins of the hall. The ruins only give you an idea of how large the structure must have been but there are explanatory plaques a...  more »

  • First visit recently and I was blown away by the natural beauty of the surrounding area, village and adjacent church. A wonderfully scenic place that you can bring the family to and enjoy both the history of the Lovell Hall and the walk around the surrounding area and Dovecote. On a beautiful day I recommend packing a lunch and then sitting by the River Windrush for a relaxing meal. The only drawback that I can see is that you cannot park your car directly outside the Hall. Parking is limited and further up the hill outside the local village.
  • Tucked away this is a lovely place to take the kids, have a picnic, explore the ruins & if you have crabbing lines then take them the river is full of Crayfish
  • Charming place for a walk and exploration of the ruins of the hall. Good for kids. A trip here could easily be combined with visits to the Church of St Mary in Swinbrook, and nearby St Oswalds near Widford.
  • A lovely place that is full of history. Watch out for the parking on a busy warm day. Take a camera, the stunning green backdrop is great for pics to top up the family album.
  • Very good. And free. Nice place for a picnic by the river
