Had a wonderful day at Wimpole 40's day, great grounds, live singers great family farm and Dad Army troop. Really well organised, great people worth joining the National Trust for this site alone. We will defiantly be going back.

Whole the site is well maintained by the National Trust. The hall is worth visiting. You can look at the life in this hall. With children, wimpole farm is also interesting. For cyclists and walkers, why not try to visit the original entrance of the winpole estate on A1198, Roman Ermine Street, where there is nothing special, though.

I enjoyed going round the house and thank Mrs Bambridge for spending her father's money doing it up. (He was Rudyard Kipling) Loved the shower room and the sweeping views across the park from Mrs Bambridge's rooms.Did not have time for formal gardens or farm but looked in at the church of St. Andrew. Recommend you do too and cross... More

Wimpole estate and farm is such a beautiful way to spend the day! I went with my little cousin and sister. My little cousin enjoyed the children's areas in the farm- child friendly! And my sister and I enjoyed the estate, it was beautiful and especially since the weather was good. If you are a national trust member, I highly... More

I paid a very enjoyable visiy to this excellent NT property on a busy Saturday. After parking I made my way to the stables courtyard where the reception, shop and a cafeteria are located. The hall was a short walk from there. Those visiting the farm can get a tractor and trailer ride from near the stables. The house was... More

This was a full day of varied attractions. The House is very interesting for a few hours of browsing through the rooms just as the last occupant had left them in the 1970’s. The below stairs had been developed to show the character of the place at an earlier time but everything is very tastefully done. The library is intact... More

A very interesting house left to the National Trust by the daughter of Rudyard Kipling. Well worth a visit. A neat and colourful formal garden. One can also visit the vegetable garden and the farm but we didn't simply because of the rain on Bank holiday Monday.

We visited with our young sons on a lovely summer morning. The car park is £2 for non members so remember your change. For national trust members you pay an additional charge to enter the farm, we paid £9 for 2 adults & 2 children. The farm is not huge but it was such a experience to see newborn piglets,... More

Our first visit to this property and estate, and were most impressed by the amazing day we spent here. Visited the restaurant for lunch which was very good, and then visited the Hall where the NT volunteers were so helpful and forthcoming without being asked. Loved the Library and the Yellow Drawing Room especially, and it was so thoughtful to... More
