Great NT property. Vast grounds to explore but just be careful in some areas. We have seen a huge oak branch fall on a previous visit and there was a very unsafe den that someone had built in the play area that collapsed, luckily with no one inside.

There are long walks to be had in the grounds and the interior boasts a magnificent collection of pianos, including one played on by Chopin.

Nice walks over the parkland, which is excellent for bluebells in Spring, plus a lovely house known for its collection of musical items, makes this a great outing. It's a National Trust property. The restaurant is very small but there are some good pubs nearby. Note that the House is not open at certain times of the year and on... More

Catering- The Catering is quite small but you don't need a big area as Hatchlands is not very busy, that does not mean it is bad.. The House- This may look bad on the outside but Inside it has lovely furniture and wonderful paintings! There is a trail for children in the house! There are lots of musical instruments which...

This Georgian mansion is nothing special to look at from outside, but inside is completely different. The walls in all the rooms are covered by the Cobbe collection of paintings including works of art by Titan and Sir Joshua Reynolds. Also throughout the house are many keyboard instruments, one, a harpsichord dating back to 1636. Many of the others dating... More

Title says is all really. I've never used the tea rooms always taken a picnic. I go with my young boys and friends with their children. The bluebell display is beautiful and the areas where they have set up for children to explore is great as it really encourages kids to get outdoors

Not the most Beautiful or grandest of the National Trusts properties, however if you are fascinated by musical history then you will be in for a treat inside this property is the Cobbe Collection of Keyboard instruments, Piano's , Harpsichords, Spinet's etc. The interior of the property exceeds the exterior the grounds are well worth a walk round and maybe...

I am so glad that I visited Hatchlands Park. The house is actually occupied so during the summer the inhabitants move upstairs. I know nothing about music or instruments but the collection of pianofortes and harpsichords etc were really beautiful; some are 300 years old. In one room there is an organ, complete with pipes, that a volunteer was playing... More

If you are keen on early keyboards (pianofortes, harpsichords, spinets, organs, virginals) this is the place for you. The audio guide to the instruments us excellent with lots of historical detail and recordings off the instruments being played, but if you are really keen then enter the house as soon as it opens. That will give you enough time to... More

Admiral Edward Boscawen and his wife Fanny had the house built in the 1750s, but they didn’t have the opportunity to live there very long as he died of a fever and other families have made changes to the house and gardens over the years. There are some gorgeous rooms and for the past 25 years Alec Cobbe has been... More
