if you like a good nature walk in safe surroundings, then this place is definitely for you. If you like history, then head over to the magnificent mansion with its lovely Georgian decor and formal gardens. I am a frequent visitor to this place and there is something different to see on every visit!

This is the first venue we have visited with our National Trust membership. The grounds are lovely and offer beautiful walks. The house is stunning to look at. But for us, the real treat was the Estate Farm. The kids loved it. Will definitely return.

I have been coming to The Wimpole Hall Estate a lot over the years and is one of my favourite places to visit! The Estate has so much to offer the visitor for the day, you can wander around the hall, the beautiful gardens, the estate and the farm! The restaurant on the estate serves excellent hot and cold foods,... More

Awe- inspiring Estate makes you wounder how anyone could amass such a wealth in history. Also, how the class culture prevailed in the 1800s. A must see if you are in the area.

Visited Wimpole on a cloudy December Monday morning knowing that the main house was closed. We wanted a breath of air, not a browse in a mansion house. We were delighted by Wimpole estate. The walks were lovely. Do not miss the folly, but please Wimpole DO signpost it better. It was splendid. Other treasures in the garden were the... More

Today was no exception a lovely mild day for December just right for wandering about the estate including the farm.

This is the closest National Trust property to where we live in Hertfordshire and we visit regularly throughout the year, although we don't go around the house every time. We are National Trust members so it is "free" for us to go. Loads of walking opportunities and a recently renovated and restored folly at the top of the hill is... More
