  • A glimpse of what could have been. A miracle that this unfinished house has survived and not be used for other projects over the last 500 years. Interesting history and symbolism in the building. Deli...  more »

  • I visited this month for a morning out, walk with the dog, and to learn and see a new place. I wasn't disappointed. What a hidden gem. An uncompleted mansion. Large gardens, paths, orchards, gardens, Elizabethan spiral mounds for fun & the views. A canal which used to carry boaters. Then a wonderful lunch and cake outside with doggie on the cottage terrace. Lyveden also sell heirloom apple varieties from their orchards, just for a donation!
  • Nice location and as always the national trust volunteers are wonderful, helpful, friendly people. Beautiful grounds... not the biggest of locations, but has some lovely spots to have a picnic, which we did .
  • Ideal for a short visit. There isn't a deal to see in terms of stately buildings due to the house being unfinished! Provides a pleasant walk. Also, nice tearoom, but you can also take a picnic.
  • A bit different to other National Trust properties but fascinating history in a comprehensive audio guide makes this one worth a visit.
  • A lovely place to visit, the cottage and house are in amazing condition, the cottage is home to a lovely tea shop. The history of this place is woven into the story of the gun powder plot and the opulence of the era, showing off the wealth of the family who owned and built the house but never finished it.
