  • This a strange one. Spent the afternoon strolling around the grounds admiring this sad but strangely lovely shell of a building. Although this isn’t a ruin but an unfinished project it still evokes th...  more »
  • This Elizabethan house, with its interesting history, is a shell that was under construction as a lodge when it was abandoned. It is a fascinating example of construction for that period, and is suppl...  more »
  • Beautiful setting on a nice day but not much to do it the weather is bad. Lovely walks and a fascinating story of wealth and loss. Worth a visit but make sure the sun is out!  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.
