  • A country estate well worth a visit. The cost of a visit is very cheap being only the charge for parking your car. For four hours I believe I paid £3.00. For countryside lovers there are a wide variety of habitats for wildlife and strategically places seats for viewing. Paths around the estate have recently been upgraded which makes it a breeze for getting around even for those who are less mobile. The front lawn of the house hosts outdoor concerts with well known artists. Cafe and toilets are also five star.
  • Great open space and nice walks to nature spot. The walled garden is lovely this time of the year too. Shame we have to pay to park now 😏
  • Well maintained paths and gardens. Safe for children and lovely walks and adventure play areas. Looks over Holes Bay. Great for bordwatching. If the cafe is busy you can get refreshments at the kiosk behind the house. The gallery is also worth a visit with work from local groups.
  • Nice place to have a picnic. Find a quiet spot in the gardens. Better for older kids if you want to walk and play on the obstacles in the woodland
  • Great place. Attractive. But not the footpaths are badly sign posted

Where to stay in Poole

Consider renting an apartment inside a redeveloped warehouse in Poole's quay. This area is full of attractions and views over the port, where boats leave for cruises to nearby islands. The town center and the harbor are near each other, and lodging is available in both areas.
