A very interesting place to visit, particularly in August when you can get a tour of the house. The Tea Room is excellent and the staff are great - very accommodating! I took a group and we toured the house and then the garden, which we found fascinating, particularly the bird cage! Around every corner was another area to explore!... More

A very interesting place. A few nice individual shops selling craft things. We found a very talented lady making cakes that were amazing! The gardens and lake were lovely. There is a cafe selling delicious cakes and food and you can sit outside in the courtyard if there's room. Will defiantly be returning. Well worth the visit.

A place worth a visit - house only opens in August however the little boutique-style outlets are worth a visit as is a walk around the lake where there were lots of ducks and other water fowls.

I Loved it…kids a bit bored… Great history of the family and the paintings are amazing. Lovely lovely staff that were so welcoming even though we were late and really they should have closed.

Had a lovely walk around Melbourne Pool and then Melbourne Hall. Stopped for something to eat and drink rather than walking into Melbourne. It's basic, hit the spot but probably wouldn't re visit. The menu looked Ok but lacked imagination on the plate and felt it was only OK.. Better places for a snack in Melbourne itself where you can... More

After an hours walk with our dogs around Mebourne Pool we were looking forward to a bite to eat. Luckily it was a dry day so we sat outside with our pooches under a gazebo, very handy when it started to rain. There was a bowl of water provided for dogs however this was full of soil? There was waitress... More

Didn't enjoy the house tour but love to wander around the gardens. Absolutely beautiful in a played down kind of way. If I could redo the house I could live here
