This is a regular spot for us with the Grandchildren. Lots of open space, a nice restuarant and a good walled playpark for the under-11s. Good activities for the children to get them interested in nature. The deer are a lovely bonus.

We visited today and were disappointed that there were only 10 rooms to see. I expected a lot more for the price we paid for 3 adults, in addition to having to pay to park the car. I have visited many stately homes and mansions,...More

£12.50 per adult. Really worth joining and you can visit so many places for just over £5 per month ! Nice place though. Pick a reasonable day weather wise as it can be really cold and windy .

No dogs are able to go in the main park because there are heards of deer, however there is a section as you exit which is outside the deer park that dogs can go.
