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

Went to see the pineapple, very disappointed. Signs very misleading we followed the brown sign and ended on a very bad back road. Arrived in the back way! The pineapple was Covered in scaffold from top to toe! You couldn't even see the shape.

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.

Travelled quite a distance to visit what seemed like an interesting attraction maintained by the National Trust. Has to park in the nearby town as the road leading up is basically a potholed dirt track. The ‘pineapple’ itself is a very impressive piece of art. We were very disappointed even in this as it was covered in scaffolding. We had... More

A very unusual building but unfortunately it is not open to the public. The grounds a lovely with a large lawn, orchard, garden, pond and woodland walks. Limited parking and free to visit.

The Pineapple itself is the centre piece of an old 19 century building into which there is no access. A beautiful huge lawn is in front where a family picnic can be held, dogs walked or leisurely strolls taken. Surrounding this walled place are nice walks through sparse woodland where long overgrown paths with many species of plants can be... More

This is a nice place to visit a very quirky building. I have been twice in the summertime as there is a lot of grass surrounding it and so not too nice trudging around sogy grass. There is no facilities that I know of, it is just a folly which everyone should see. Worth at least one visit.
