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.

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...

We went on a sunny Sunday morning, arriving just before 10AM and we were lucky to get a car parking space, there were queues to get in shortly after! It is a massive open space, perfect for barbecues and picnics. There is a very large play area/ adventure playground catering for all ages, toilets and a cafe. There were bouncy... More

FREE parking and amazing walks - we went through a wooded area and up to the castle. It was truly bliss!!! Perfect for picnics, games, bbq's and walks; with or... More
