  • Beautiful castle and grounds, there's not much of a "garden" like Compton acres or a hedgerow maze, but there are some lovely trees and plants. I would have liked to have seen more activities. Maybe a horse and carriage ride if the grounds, a boat ride along the lake or decorating your own souvenirs like a tea cup or plate. I'm aware they do event days but can find these quite tedious due to the sheer number of visitors. The price is relatively good and the tea house was quite a nice place for cake!
  • A lovely place to visit. Calm, tranquil and, on the day we visited, relatively quiet. The castle was steeped in history and there were guides in most rooms who were very well-informed. There's also a very nice little teashop and pleasant walks alongside the lake
  • The castle is well worth a visit . Informative staff with passion for the place. Wonderful parkland and lake. Perfect for a walk, long or short
  • Beautiful garden centre. Knowledgeable staff. Pricey but bargains to be found. Check the TLC section. Lovely tea room. Delicious cakes!
  • Great place. Guides were excellent in their knowledge and the grounds are breathtaking.
