Had the afternoon free, so thought we'd take the kids for a walk to Lydiard Park, as its only a 15 minute walk from the house. Nice hot summers afternoon, so we all needed fresh air.

Had time to kill so went for a walk in the park. Glorious weather made for a pleasant hour. Just ambled along taking in the peace and tranquility of a lovely park. Maybe if I'm in the area again I will get to see more.

Brilliant staff, couldn't do enough for us! Do not go when a wedding is taking place, the disruption and noise isn't a small problem it's a massive problem!

On a nice day you can easily spend half a day or more here walking around the grounds. There is also a house to look round (free to HHA members) with informative displays and helpful, knowledgeable guides to answer any questions

I love going here on a regular basis beautiful place to walk round and walk the dog. This is all year round even in winter when the weather is dry, brings out another beautiful side to the park. The house is worth a visit as well with its different roles through out the years.

Lovely local estate that has great buggy-friendly tracks. Two cafes for cups of tea and snacks if you like to take a break. There's a fun filled children's area to keep the kids happy for hours and bbq area to keep adults happier still; -) cannot recommend this enough if you're in the area, great place to stretch your legs...
