I have visited this Mausoleum many times over the past few years but this is the first time since it's renovation by the national trust. The renovation work has transformed what was a derelict monument back to it's former status. The volunteers manning it's opening...More

We had a lovely walk in the wood followed by an interesting visit to the Mausoleum. It has been well restored, and our NT guide gave us lots of information about the history of the Darnley family. Not something that you’d spend all day doing,...More

Review isn't so much about the mausoleum itself as the surrounding areas. The mausoleum is beautiful but it's set in a beautiful location. Definitely worth a Sunday afternoon stroll :)

Having visited the woods and seeing the outside of the mausoleum for many years, it was very pleasant to see the inside having heard many stories about the local teenagers who have used it for illegal activity over the years. It is a shame that...More
