Lydiard is easy to get to, ample parking. BBQs allowed on site - great for summer time. The house is there if you're into stately home type visits but I haven't been there. Great summer concerts BRILLIANT playground for kids - loads of place to roam freely. Great for walks through the woods and nearby fields, historic pathways, good bike... More

Lydiard Park has it all . Plenty of walks, childrens play areas, fishing lake, lots of dog walks, Adventure play area with zip wires climbing frames and more. There are also a couple of cafes that are reasonably priced. All in all a good day out for families and couples.

Lydiard Park is a great afternoon outing. There is plenty of space to run around. The house is absolutely amazing although there is an entrance fee - the grounds are free.

Fancy a bit of exercise and a look at the beautiful fall colours, this is a great place for it. There are good walking areas, the trees are beautiful and placed in the centre, the lovely Lydiard house. A good day out.
