We visited last Wednesday, taking advantage of the 2 for 1 offer on their website, resulting in the admission at £5pp represented good value. The house has an interesting history, having been built and extended at various times between c16th - 19th. Christine, the guide, was very welcoming, knowledgeable and informative on the guided tour which lasted about 1 hour,... More

Visited here yesterday, we had planned to visit for a while and were pleased to find a 2 for 1 offer from Trip Advisor while checking the website for opening times. I prefer free-flow when I visit places but found the guided tour, which lasted an hour, very interesting and informative. Each room is crammed with furniture, ornaments, tapestries and... More

We visited here. after being given a 2:1 voucher from protest. We arrived on a Tuesday and were the only ones there. We have a dog so had only planned on going around the gardens and were not disappointed. The walled garden was beautiful with an amazing array of fruit trees. The views and plants were glorious. We stayed for... More

Collectors of contemporary ceramics and day trippers have a perfect venue at Hutton in the Forest. The grounds are glorious and the stately trees provide shade for parking and for picnics. Potfest in the Park is a small but well attended art fair offering wares to suit every pocket in a relaxed and friendly setting. The restaurant at Hutton is... More

I visited during Potfest and then used a 2 for 1 voucher to revisit. This is a beautiful place. The house is very well kept, very clean with fresh flowers in the rooms. All the woodwork is gleaming and there is no sign of any dust unlike some other houses I have been to. The gardens range from spectacular flower... More

We visited the area and happened to see the Pot fest 2014. Some interesting pieces of ceramics with a number of international stalls. Good selection but pricey. It is artisan quality though! Well done. Stately home and gardens are average within this category. There is so much to see in the lakes, I will make time to visit some of... More

We took a group of friends from overseas to visit the house and gardens. Overall I felt it expensive £10pp for house and gardens, the tour takes around a number of rooms with antiques and old paintings. The tea room was a real let down, paper cups...paper plates..tea £1.50 a cup is made in a communal huge pot which was... More

We have not been here since last year but like most stately homes it is kept up to a good standard. There is the usual tea room with a good selection of homemade goodies. Outside the gardens are extensive and well presented with plants for sale. They have an extensive calendar of events the next being Postfest in the Park... More

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
