  • We started the day with drive through the grounds, it's 2 miles from the ticket office to the house. I have never seen so many deer in one place. There are 9 species and we saw hundreds of individuals...  more »
  • A treat for my Mum. Tea was good but only 1 pot each no refills, scones were good, a spoon for the cream and jam would have been nice, good selection of bite sized cakes but would have preferred more ...  more »
  • My friend & I enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea here. The service was excellent & the cakes plentiful! There were also scones & sandwiches. I personally would have preferred more sandwiches & fewer cakes...  more »

  • So many good memories of this place over the years Its beautiful. The gardens are stunning especially in summer. Its a perfect place for a picnic or a stroll back in time. Me and my children have grown up coming here and its never disappointed. If your disabled your carer goes free and its also discounted admission. You can spend a day or just a couple of hours in the beautiful gardens and deer park. I love that it hasn't changed that much over the years. A perfect day out ☺
  • We loved seeing the home. The safari park is VERY high priced, by the person, not by the car. We saw lots of monkeys, giraffes, a couple bears, a lion and cub from a distance, etc. Kids would love this place. Our favorite was the grotto room of the Great House.
  • Beautiful grounds, perfect for a summers day picnic with the family, plenty of space for the children to explore. Beautiful house full of historical facts, pottery studio (but bring cash if you want a price of pottery as a keepsake) and a lovely area to great fresh baked goods. I recommend the carrot cake, was delicious.
  • Lovely large gardens with plenty of variety. In some areas you can take a picnic or you can get afternoon tea in the tea rooms. Mixed results with the afternoon tea, lovely tea and reasonable sandwiches as you'd expect then some lovely shortbread biscuits and cream sponges but their scones were so over baked they were more like biscuits! Perfect afternoon if the sun is shining
  • I did a walk from Woburn village which was mainly through the deer park, great views of the house and grounds. The footpath was well signed and made up, the final section of the walk was through woods with amazing trees.
