  • Had trip here this week, the house has a great history and the custodians are very knowledgable and friendly. When you have finished in the house the gardens provide a number of different walks.  more »
  • We visited Knightshayes on a crisp and chilly winters morning. We arrived a bit early for the house so walked around the gardens which are amazingly well kept. Lots of information points on different ...  more »

  • Stunning gardens typical of National Trust properties, great for exercising the offspring and the dog. Natural play park made from fallen oaks, woodland, fields and hills, orchards, livestock etc. Have several times and still haven't covered all of the grounds. Deducted one star because of the house itself not offering much for children, being much more of a 'don't touch anything' location. Some NT houses have period costume for children to try on, for example, while Knightshayes retains the dated tradition of putting ropes around everything. Bottom line, if looking for something to do with the kids, don't bother paying to go inside the house just explore the grounds.
  • This is truly an interesting Gothic house! A lot of interesting rooms with a stunning interior! The architect was a stoned designer who dressed in medieval clothes and had crazy ideas about how the house should look like! Sadly he got fired and someone else finished his job but the owners didn't like the designs and made it more Victorian... The garden is beautiful! A lot of trails between beautiful flowers or trees.
  • Had a lovely walk around the beautiful grounds on a cold, windy but bright winters day with my friends and their dog. Stunning place! Stopped by the cafe for the obligatory tea and scone (cheese this time!). Good service and polite staff. Clean toilets. Water supplied for the four legged friends in the courtyard area. Will definitely return for a wander through the house and explore more of the grounds.
  • A lovely house tucked away in Devon. Fantastic gardens to walk round and friendly staff to tell you about it's history. There was also a really clever play park made from some fallen trees that kept the kids busy for ages.
  • Another impressive old country house. Plenty of car parking and then a stroll down the hill to the house. Still lots to see even though some of the rooms are closed for maintenance this time of year. In the spring there will be bedrooms to see. The little cafe wasn't large enough to seat all of the visitors who wanted refreshment.
