Afternoon out

Visited the castle, had a lovely walk around the grounds. Plenty of places for the grandchildren to explore and burn off some energy. Well worth a visit for all the family

Visited Bank Holiday Monday after the new year. Spent nearly 2 hours walking around the grounds taking photos in the lovely winter sunshine. Visited the renovated greenhouse and was impressed with the plants in there. Cafe was busy with families so didn't stay for a cuppa. All in all a lovely afternoon to blow away the cobwebs. Photographers delight.

We were so excited to take our kids to see Santa at Wentworth Castle, we booked 4-4.30pm slot, thinking afterwards we'd walk about for a bit, have something to eat, sing some carols and wait for the fireworks at 7.45pm...there was no atmosphere at this venue whatsoever and hardly visitors, apart from Santa's grotto, which looked beautiful with all the...

Had a wonderful time at the free festive event tonight. Well organised and the fireworks were a lovely end to the event, we even saw Santa flying off as fireworks went off!

We went to a 60th birthday party with two of our friends. It was an excellent venue, the food was first class and the service was friendly and efficient. Lovely atmosphere, a great place for a party and a great party!

Utterly disappointed, definitely not value for money. When we arrived we discovered that we had to pay 9.95 per adult as well as for the children so as their were 4 adults and 2 children we spent £60 on seeing santa. We went upstairs into a room with a elf and a raffle table in, no music was being played... More

In addition there was deer feeding in the parkland at 1:30pm. We are sorry if you... More

Lovely place to visit the cake we had was amazing. I bought some meat from the small butchers shop and some stocking fillers from one of the other shops. There is a farm that you can visit with your family but was just adults today. Will definitely go back with the children.

Took the family here for many days out. The outdoor play area is fantastic and the grounds are beautiful. The cafe has a good selection of food and its delicious. Will certainly be visiting many more times.
