Lovely walks through interesting woodlands. Bring coins as to get out of car park you have to pay and there was no one around when we wanted to exit.We took a chance and tailgated another car to get out.

Very nice. Beautifully landscaped with different variety of trees, a nice walled garden with flowers, gorgeous views of the countryside. The house is now just a shell, but the grounds are definitely worth a visit.

Great place for a family afternoon, beautiful gardens and walks, the only negatives I feel are the 4 euro parking charge which might be a bit steep for some families in these current economic times. Also I thought the gardens were not being as well maintained this year as they normally are, again propably due to staffing levels.

Only €3 entry per car, however many people. You can walk for hours here, but with plenty opportunity to sit if you wish, amazing gardens with fruit and vegetables aswell as ornamental trees, summerhouse, cafe, rose garden. The cafe is small but it could have more homemade cakes etc, still a nice place to eat though, an old style conservatory!

At least that is how I felt when I entered Woodstock! I happen to love nature and trees and plants so this was a dream-come-true for me. While there I went into their little tea room and loved it! The grounds are spectacular and you can take your time wandering from one area to the next. It was beautiful and... More

Despite visiting when most of the flowers and blooms had finished the gardens were still attractive with some spectacular trees and changing foliage. Entrance is only €4 for a carload (however many people)

Very clean and a well set up place for picnics we spent hours wondering around with the kids. Well worth the visit. Make sure you have the €4 for the carpark
