    We regularly walk our dogs here in the river meadows below the house. The house and gardens are wonderful and the café (in the old stable block) serves fresh cakes in generous proportion, in addition to teas and coffees. Its National Trust and well worth a visit.

    I really wanted to go here so was a little anxious it might be a letdown but no from the entrance into the gardens it is beautiful. The staff were lovely, welcoming, knowledgable and very happy to answer questions. Children would be kept occupied with the many tasks posed for them in the rooms and the opportunity to touch and try. Great dressing up box in the jubilee room. The wind rush exhibition showing a side to HW I was completely unaware of. The films especially the badger and Errol ones fascinating! Superb exhibits with a wide range of chairs. Great cafe and grounds to wander round. You will not be disappointed

    First time in High Wycombe, attending a charity walk for Prostate Cancer starting and ending at the cricket club. A very pleasant walk around Rye park, amazing open space and fairly safe for children and dogs off lead.

    Staff where amazing, remembered my son from the beginning of the day (his crocodile hat) and again when they saw him later on which means a lot to a little person.
    The tractor ride driver was lovely, we went on at 2pm and bearing in mind he had already done a few trips there was no let up in his enthusism.
    the H2o'dd was a great little extra we were not aware of and the kids loved it!! Indoor and outdoor parks were brilliant and crazy golf great too!

    Arriving at 2.10pm after a lengthy journey we were a little perturbed to find that we couldn’t visit the house till 3.40pm because it was busy. However we enjoyed a leisurely stroll up the Broad Walk to the lake and crossed a little bridge where we sat at some picnic tables (?) and enjoyed the tranquility and views of the park. Ample seating was provided for people waiting to tour the house as well. Water was on sale but we had thoughtfully brought our own. Our guide for the tour was Jill who was both interesting, amusing and informative. There were not many rooms to see but the tour lasted 40 minutes and what we saw was quality and each room was quite different. We found the staff charming and friendly but I was left with the feeling that the Dashwood family had got a very good deal from the NT but at least we got to see some beautiful things and being members hadn’t for the privilege!

    You walk sown long corridors hewn out of the rock, into several chambers where the Hell Fire Club supposedly met. It could be claustrophobic for people who don't like tunnels or caves, but is great for kids. Nice little coffee shop just outside. You can also walk over the fields behind the caves, up the hill, to the Dashwood mausoleum. Great views of the surrounding countryside. In summary, a great place to visit for a couple of hours.

    My son and I did the campfire cooking which we both REALLY enjoyed. Becky and Ed are so relaxed and made everything really fun. The food was amazing and we both learnt some invaluable fire cooking skills as well as trying some incredible recipes - 'Best chicken ever!' . The location was amazing and I would highly recommend anyone doing this for something really different and a great day out - definitely going back! Thanks for a great time.

    Took my 2 and 4 year old, who had a wonderful time. It’s been recently refurbished and my boys loved playing in the little village, even more than the soft play frame. The ride on toys were also a big hit. Could have stayed much longer than the allocated 90 minutes. Clean and well run. the baby shark song marking the end of the session was a nice touch, the kids didn’t want to leave.

    Booked the soft play for my 14 month old who is starting to take a few independent steps. No staff around at all when I arrived so just walked in. Tables had not been wiped down and were covered in crumbs from previous visitors. The baby area was absolutely filthy. Sticky, dirty patches on the floor everywhere and pieces of food. It was really quiet with it being a term-time morning so it clearly has not been even wiped down with a damp cloth in a long time, let alone properly cleaned. This is a particular concern as my daughter has multiple allergies. There wasn’t much in there and it was so disgusting that I took my daughter into the lower areas of the toddler section despite the recommended age being 2+, as there weren’t any other children in there. I can see if it was busy there wouldn’t be space for adults to escort their babies round. This area seemed cleaner and I felt happier being there. As I was packing up I noticed a sign saying the only food consumed should be bought on-site. This was not happening as every family there had brought their own food, and as I walked out the cafe was unmanned so I’m not sure how you are meant to feed your children if you can’t bring your own food…probably won’t return until my daughter is a lot older.

    Went to see No Time to Die last Thursday (4 Nov). Enjoyed the film, clean cinema but boy it was so cold.
    I am a senior citizen but young at heart and am fit, think nothing of going 8-10 miles for a walk often by the sea in cold conditions however, next time will be going to Cineworld with hat, gloves, North Face coat and blanket !!!!!
    Come on management don’t be mean with the heating ……

    Movie was great but paid extra for the premium seats which on the online booking chart looked to very comfortable, wide seats. This is not what you get . They are not that wide, a bit more legroom but really in need of new coverings and springs. Not very comfortable. If that is what the premium seats are like heaven help the people sitting in the normal ones. Numb bum at the end of the movie. very disappointing.

    It was very busy and pretty expensive. We paid £83 for 4 adults and 3 children for 1 lane for 2 games. The younger children used the bumpers but 1 didn't work automatically, which was a nuisance.

Although I am a member of Wycombe Rye Lido and entitled to free parking, the parking company ‘Civil Enforcement’ issued me with three parking fines.

    I appealed, and won, but Civil Enforcement was as difficult as could be, even though they had no authority to issue the tickets. If I hadn’t been a lawyer, I might have caved in, as they bombarded me with irrelevant and irritating case law to try to frighten me.

    This sort of litigious behaviour is unacceptable and unnecessary and puts people off using the recreational spaces at the Rye.
