The kids enjoyed doing the treasure hunt and it kept the adults entertained too! Nice couple of hours around the grounds but don’t think it would last you a whole day.

a truly unremarkable place, some vaguely interesting features but extremely poorly maintained, the so called stunning gardens are mediocre at very best. SAVE YOUR MONEY it really isn't all that the glossy leaflet says it is. THE BLACK CAT CAFE - this was the biggest...More

We spent a damp afternoon walking through the grounds and were captured by the beauty. The walks are easy and the architecture throughout - mill pool & folly, theatre etc is lovely. I would really recommend this.

We live locally, but had never been to this park. It was a lovely few hours walking around with the dog. It will be even better once the main house is finished next year. Well worth a visit

We read up about the park before our stay and our visit went beyond what we expected. This place had an old fashioned charm and we were surprised by how quiet it was. If you want an interesting walk with the family (ours range 8-13)...More

Despite being very cold and snowy, the sun shone through and made this a great time in the park. Well worth the entrance fee. See caves, waterfalls, follies and not forgetting the amphitheatre. Was quiet due to the weather and time of the year. Would...More

Lovely walks and interesting follies. Disappointed that the workshops were closed on a Saturday afternoon.

There are two toilet blocks, one near the cafe and one near the craft workshops. There are no toilets within the grounds/gardens themselves.

Yes, absolutely. The place is perfect for dog walking. But they do need to be kept on a leash and their mess cleaned. Appropriate bins provided in the car park.
