Fantastic really pleased and we always aim our holidays to include a National Trust property... More

Did not have time to explore the house so we must come back. We spent all day wandering through the beautiful Shropshire countryside on a hot summer's day. Had lunch in the mansion tea room Great day but food is limited and simplistic. Can and should be improved considering this is a flagship property

Where to start, well if you like all the National Trust stands for then Attingham Park is the perfect place to see it all in action. With beautiful grounds and the most fabulous architecture being painstakingly preserved it's a property not to be missed. I personally found the volunteers here to be superb, especially the elegant lady who spoke to... More

Beautiful grounds and scenic views. Lots of quiet spots, especially in the deer park where we managed to have a lovely picnic in the sun!

Our visit started with delicious cooked to order bacon rolls in the Courtyard Café. This was followed by an entertaining and informative guided tour of the house by a brilliant man in 19th century costume. The house is lovely to walk around but he really brought the house and its history to life with his stories and knowledge. Some of... More

Attingham Park belongs to the Attingham Estate and now belongs to the National Trust so, unless you are a member, you do have to pay to visit. There are a couple of signposted walks around the park and it is a pleasant way to spend a morning or an afternoon. It is a deer park, so it is possible to... More

The guide who showed us round part of the house and told us the history of the Berwick family told us that this is the 4th most visited National Trust property and there are certainly plenty of reasons to visit. The walled garden is fascinating, beautifully cared for with mouthwatering vegetables as well as colourful flowers for cutting. The story... More

This is a beautiful house, enlarged over time but in good preservation. Many rooms open to view, some beautiful items of furniture, including a large circular desk, but the dining room is stunning and beautifully presented. The representations of sugar work that would have been real in the early 19th C make you wonder at the workmanship and put our... More
