I very rarely post reviews, but I feel Hutton in the Forst definitely deserves a review! The lovely ladies there very kindly looked after my dog Rosie whilst I went on the tour of the castle, which was carried out by a excellent guide! Beautiful castle and the ground were gorgeous too, and I was able to take my dog... More

We enjoyed a varied and engaging guided tour of this lovely family home with Christine. With only four of us on the tour there was plenty of opportunity to explore and ask questions which bought the collection and interesting history to life. Sandwiches in the tea room were tasty although service a little slow. The gardens are beautiful. Our only... More

We visited Hutton during the last week of May. The gardens were spectacular. There is a large walled garden divided into various sections. The variety and colours were fantastic. It was one of the best gardens I've visited! In addition you are allowed to take your dogs into the walled garden which is quite rare. National Trust won't allow you... More

What a lovely afternoon - well worth the money. We toured the spectacular gardens 1st in glorious weather. A pleasure to admire and enjoy. The whole grounds are well maintained. Our guide for the tour of the interior and exterior of the house and gardens was very knowledgeable and interesting, due to her passion she went over the allocated time,... More

The gardens are some of the best I have seen anywhere - first rate. The house is interesting as a building covering several centuries of styles and the interior is equally interesting. Our guide for the interior tour was very knowledgeable. Only grumble was paying £4.30 for a sandwich made out of Hovis sliced bread and packet ham; I don't... More

This was a wonderful garden and house.We were very lucky when we went as we had really good weather.The grounds are looked after by a few gardeners that do a good job. We went round the house with a tour guide who was very knowledgeable,but it did go on a bit. We had lunch in their small restaurant which was... More

Visited during an historical vehicle rally and what a wonderful day out it proved to be. Had wanted to visit Hutton in the Forest for years and was not disappointed. The gardens and grounds are spectacular, especially the walled gardens with its fruit trees and new wrought iron gates. Butterflies were everywhere. It was even better to be able to... More

We visited Hutton in the Forest on one of the days there was a show on and it was fun to walk around the exhibits as well as tour the enormous old mansion. It felt like the family had just set down their book and walked out of the room as we ventured throughout. Very intimate and beautifully decorated. What... More

the clay work was interesting to see and we were glad to have an opportunity to look around this amazing family home and gardens. We felt like Lord and Lady Inglewood had just got up and walked out of the rooms just before we arrived & that we were invited guests! The volunteers here were very friendly and knowledgeable. We...

I stumbled across this in a Lakeland brochure, and noticed that yesterday was the last day this year the house is open - so with no further ado off I went. From the weather forecast it wasn't looking too promising but there were a few breaks in the cloud. Having got there at 11am, when the gardens open, I had... More
