  • This is a place that I've visited many times. However, this was the first tim that I'd visited the gardens. The walks are very varied and enjoyable. I'm looking forward to the next time.

  • A well kept, well loved house and gardens. The rooms are beautiful and all interesting, all the volunteers in the room are knowledgeable. Does require a walk up a hill from the car park to the house but a buggy service is provided if necessary. The cafe in the bottom of the house is a perfect way to finish the day. Can easily spend the whole day exploring the house and gardens here.
  • We tried one of the walks today rather than the house and it was beautiful.....especially after a very tasty Chicken and Mustard stew with crusty bread! ( well recommended!)
  • If you enjoy history, architecture, art and gardens then Basildon Park is well worth a visit. The volunteers in each room were very helpful and I especially appreciated how welcoming they were to children and families.
  • Large house and grounds, entrance is interesting as you approach via the woodland path. Nice gardens house still laid out as a family home. House has an interesting history and a lot of work has been done on the property, unfortunately we visited on a day when there was a shortage of volunteers which would have improved the overall experience.
  • Lovely house with plenty to see and a long relaxing walk in the grounds after. Tea rooms outside
