We were there on a beautiful day which provided us with an ideal chance to saunter through the woods with its impressive tall trees and especially along the avenue of monkey puzzle trees. We were in April and possibly too early in the season to witness the beauty of the walled gardens which we hoped would be filled and flourishing... More

The car park has a 4€ price to enter and risk clamping if you park outside! However, the walk up from the village of Inistioge is very nice and not too far. You can walk up the road about a klometre and a half, or up a path by the river (but you risk getting lost like we did). If... More

I hadn't even heard of this place before but our B&B owner recommended it as something to do before our drive home as it was only a few miles away. Entry is well worth the €4 fee (payable on exit via coin-only machine). We were studying the map on the board at the entrance when the caretaker arrived up on... More

If you like trees, this is the place. Majestic tall specimens sympathetically cared for without being too formal. The place was deserted when we were there and it gave the place a lovely peaceful feel. Walled garden has many edible crops with the last of the apples still providing food for the birds as well as yew berries for the... More

Anybody who likes the outdoors and walking will love Woodstock. I visit here regularly with my family. It has great enjoyment for both young and old. We even got engaged here, in the rockery with the little cottage. It is beautiful at any time of year and there are many places and paths to explore. The carpark is 4 Euro,... More

Faded glory,I know it was wet and November but no one around at all!tea room was closed and we were lucky to have €4 in coins as would not have been able to get out of the car park. Might be better in season but looks in terminal decline.
