Came to visit as part of the National Gardens Scheme. Not sure what we were expecting but although the grounds were open (the house wasn't) there seemed little in the way of actual gardens. The grounds are mainly lawned with numerous large fully grown trees...More

Unable to go into the house so walked round the gardens then watched the fountain do it's party piece. Well worth a visit but it would pay to enquire if the fountain will be working on the day you visit

The fountain is certainly worth a visit. The spray spreads for yards so be prepared to get wet or take a brolly. It is amazing and worth a visit just to see the children having a whale of a time running round. The house I...More

The house and grounds are sublime but the fountain should be listed as one of the wonders of the world. It was a 30 minute extravaganza of the forces of nature and provided fun and exceptional experiences for visitors of all ages

This attraction is only open in June, July and August on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 2 and 5 pm, so is very popular on these days. Although we arrived at 2pm, there was already a fairly long queue, with just one lady taking the entrance...More

There doesn't appear to be public tours of the house although staff talk of private tours but no information seems to be available on how to do this. There is a small cafe in part of the outbuildings which provides good quality food. It's a...More

So glad we stopped by Stanway House & it's wonderful fountain. The house has a real homely feel to it with a calm, relaxing rooms. It was very difficult not to sink into the squashy sofas! So not like the set interiors of some properties...More
