Interesting building

Not so big a place to visit, but if you are in the area worth dropping in to see. Recommend more for adults.

Again in you are in or near this area it's worth a visit. The story behind this property is very interesting and the gardens are beautiful.

Have been visiting The Pineapple for years and it really seems it's a bit reglected nowadays. But - where's really the money to keep up with all the buildings the Trust or HS has to look after. It's not a used building apart from renting it as a holiday flat so there might be even more problems. I think it's... More

I can cycle to the Pineapple in about 30 minutes. In the spring and summer the surrounding gardens are worth a wander around, it is also worth looking in at the Dunmore model village.

We cam across this by accident. Its down a small single track lane but there is a carpark at the end. The Pineapple is larger than I was expecting and was set at the top of a terraced lawn. The detailing is incredible. The rest of the garden is OK and there is a woodland walk where dogs can be... More

The Pineapple is a truly unusual and spectacular place to spend a few days. Let’s face it, not many of can say that we’ve had dinner inside an enormous stone pineapple! The Landmark Trust own the building and it’s available for short-stay holiday lets. We were told it was built by a Lord Dunmore, a former Governor of Virginia, a... More

I loved this I have always wanted to visit but never made it until now. The grounds seemed a little neglected which is a shame as with some picnic tables etc this would be a lovely place to take kids and go for picnics and general afternoon out however it was still nice. There is a walled garden which made... More

A surprise nestling in the woods and quite unexpected. Is it a Folly or a statement of the developing horticultural knowledge of the 18th century.Although not possible to see inside ( shame ) the walled garden on a warm autumn morning was a pleasure .

The owner of our holiday let brought us here to have a look around & to also show us the derelict crypt nearby as I have an interest in the paranormal. This is a visually stunning building which I am led to believe you can rent to stay in. The derelict crypt nearby which was sadly ransacked some years ago... More

Worth a detour if you are nearby. The building is worth a photograph. The garden is getting neglected and only some of the grass mowed. The flowers around the walls are nice but not maintained.
