We spotted this in the NGS' Wiltshire Gardens 2015 booklet so decided to head north to see what Swindon had to offer. Signage was excellent and parking no problem. What an asset!

We went here on a lovely sunny Saturday afternoon. Although there were hundreds of people there, it was quiet because the park covers such a large area. We didn't eat here but had some of their wonderful icecreams. Delicious.

Beautiful surroundings with basic accommodation which is separate in conference centre. Very basic rooms but clean ideal for overnight but need updating reminded us of student accommodation. Very fresh food and plentiful. We had a problem in our bathroom which tried to be rectified by the staff but unsuccessful and could not be placed else where due to being fully... More

Lovely venue with some great walks, would definitely recommend. Only suggestion would be that the café is open longer in the evenings....

Lydiard park is to the west of Swindon with toehold Mansion set in its grounds. To walk right round the park takes between one and and a half hours to two depended on your speed, Varied views from the Lake to cars to the downs.

Free to visit, free to park, loads to do. How many council-run attractions do you know like this? There's an adventure play area, bouncy castles, bbq spots a large cafeteria and, tucked round the back, The Stables tea are, much calmer and more sedate for us oldies. There are miles of trails, lakes and water birds aplenty and tons of... More

Visit often, for picnics, to walk the dog, and to take grandchildren to the play park. Nice little restaurant for basic refreshments, a lake and ducks. What more could you want !
