I'm getting a little bored with NT properties. Hatchlands was ok when the children were tiny but there really isn't much to entertain here unless you come on one of the 'special' days. There's an awful lot of cow pats and not much in the way of cafes. Considering the biggest annual fee payers are families there is also an... More

This is o lovely place - too bad it only opens the house and keyboard collection from 2pm on. However, the grounds are lovely and there are a number of interesting things to study before getting into the place. There is somewhat limited cafe but it worked well for us. What I liked in the house is that it gives... More

Visited here with other families. Loved the spacehoppers on the lawn and the archery lessons. There was also a trail for the children to follow, and other families there had brought their own ball-games. Very child-friendly. Cafe very small with a limited selection but what was there was ok.

We went here the day after the Shoreham plane crash to take our mind off things. The house has, what's described as the worlds largest single collection of antique keyboard instruments in the world. It even Chopins grand piano shipped over here from France when he was 'on tour' in the UK! The house is actually occupied by Mr Alec... More

We are NT members so stopped here for lunch and a look round. A lovely smallish house and good walks round the parkland beyond. Check the day you visit as the house is not open every day. Amongst the busy roads and traffic this lovely place is so tranquil. As usual very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable staff.

This property makes a real effort to provide plenty to do for families with young (primary school and below) children. We'd only visited once before, a few years ago, and far more is in place now than back then. My children are currently 8 and 10. The huge parkland, with its woods and fields, is lovely enough to ramble around... More

Lovely grounds for a summer stroll and a wooded play area for kids. The house itself is not open every day, so worth checking before you set off. It is a beautifully designed building which houses a unique collection of early pianos, which are fascinating in themselves.

My friend and I took our 6 children for a day out in to this beautiful park. We didn't go into the house this time on account of 3 toddlers but the grounds are simply stunning and beautifully set up for out door adventure for all ages. The park had laid on activities for the children as it was half... More

Hatchlands is a strange place as it belongs to the National Trust but has a paying tenant who has furnished the house with his Collection, hence you can not take photos. The stunning interiors by Robert Adams, such as the ceilings and fireplaces can only be etched into your mind by staring at them intensly as neither are postcards sold... More
