Great place for walkers

Blaise Castle grounds are a great place to visit, lovely for walking around and even if the weather is a bit chilly, wrap up well and go for a fantastic walk.

Free museum full of toys, costume and local history. The picture room is stunning (and they do weddings there!). The Victorian school room is cool. There's scary dolls too, and a cabinet of curiosities!

The Museum itself, although smallish is interesting and informative however if you want to visit the Castle you will have to be fit to follow one of the paths through the woods and up a fairly steep incline. The Castle is a triangular Folly which is NOT open to the Public but is curious in it's own way. The Museum... More

I visited Blaise for the first time today to see a dog show which was great, with lots of well-behaved canines. I was equally impressed with the vast green spaces and we walked for most of the afternoon. Fortunately we'd brought a picnic as the cafe specialises in the usual burgers and chips. My boyfriend queued for ages to get... More

On a sunny (or at least not rainy) day this park is great for a quiet walk. Well paved paths run through a mixture of open grass and secluded woods, with a castle hidden behind the trees and a stream running through the middle of it all. Very clean, very well maintained.

Great walks. Excellent park, one for the younger child & one for the older child. Great field for picnics and games. Nice gentle river running through estate & great for exploring. I run through here weekly & love it. My kids love the park & river. They also enjoy climbing trees & exploring. Cafe near museum ok. The foley is... More

Difficult to find the actual castle! I remember visiting here as a child. A lovely summer's day and I was in the area. Grounds are in good condition and obviously very popular with families. I really wanted to find the old castle but it was not signposted and I could not find it. I ended up asking a dog walker... More

I've grown up coming here so have seen lots of changes (all for the better). This is a fantastic place to walk the dog, let the children run through the woods and streams, sit for a picnic, play ball, play in the park, look at the old house/ museum or sit and have a coffee and some fresh air. I... More

Other reviewers have made big play of the estate at the expense of the house/museum. This is a bit hard. For sure, it is probably not for kids (and dogs) but it is a real attempt to make something of an interesting story on what is surely a small budget. I went on an (infrequent) guided tour with the curator.... More

Lucky with the weather, it was a beautiful sunny day and we quickly warmed up from walking through the woods. As soon as we got in the car park I knew it's gonna be something I will want to go back to. All that my eyes could see was green! Full of green grass, trees, everything! Beautiful, with a nice...
