  • Excellent on a Summery Sunny Day. A very good cafe also there. Busy on Sundays. Plenty of space to walk around and running and for other activities. Very well Maintained always.
  • Nice little house , small enough for kids not to get bored. Pleasant, well maintained gardens and bonus is cafe serving good selection of meals and cakes.
  • Great place to visit free entry just make a donation when you leave the house also has a great play area for the kids mini golf course and plenty off fields for kids to run off there excess energy
  • What a gem! Lovely historic house that's free to enter, staff encourage you to sit on the furniture and dress up in period clothing if it takes your fancy. Plenty of information to read and art work to enjoy, exhibitions of art work and puppets that change regularly and a play area for the kids with vintage pictures to colour, make it a perfect rainy day retreat. Caffè on site with lovely food at great prices. Not forgetting the little antiques shop that's like an Aladin's cave of hidden treasures. Events going on throughout the year such as craft, vintage and the popular antique fair. 1940's evenings and groups in the tractor shed. The park and gardens surround the house are well kept with a mini golf course and ample parking. Fabulous day out for all the family
  • Always a great time to be had at bantock house and park. Very good for the kids, lots of wide open spaces. A visit into the house is always a good one for the kids.
