Yes it's nice to see but there is nothing else there. The grounds could be better and opening up the building would at least bring in extra business. Better boards for explaining the history would be at least something. Visit if you have a special interest but don't rush

This is a most unusual building and (in my opinion) if you are in the area, it’s worth driving down the rutted track to take a photo. At the time of writing of Sept 2014, you can’t go inside though, the building is deemed to be unsafe. Just about the only other thing to do there is to walk the... More

We actually stayed here, you can book it through the Landmark Trust (http://www.landmarktrust.org.uk/search-and-book/properties/pineapple-10726/). It was not up to the Landmark Trust's usual high standards. We booked it up at the end of last year, as with many historic buildings, some necessary work has to be done, and I must say the craftsmens work was excellent. The proprty should not have... More

Signage for paths is poor but the gardens are great showing signs of former glory.New labels would be an easy addition.

I have been planning to go to see this amazing building for some time now and after a brief look on the website decided to drive out there yesterday (16th June). To say I was disappointed is an understatement - the 'pineapple' is completely obscured by scaffolding. I think that restoration of buildings is a terrific excericise however the website... More

This is an interesting attraction for the architecture, but sadly that is all. The day we visited it had been raining for most of the afternoon, but it had stopped by the time we got there, which was quite late in the afternoon. The road up to the venue is difficult to navigate as it is littered with pot holes... More

I walk the dog in the grounds and he loves just to wander without getting lost as he can't go too far out of your sight. The actual pineapple is an amazing building especially when you read the history about the place. I believe you can actually stay in the building as it's a holiday let.
