Designed by Capability Brown this is a lovely park to walk in. Lots of deer to see, and old oak trees with mistletoe in abundance. Ample free parking and you can stay as long as you like.

We wanted to visit the Chritmas shop which in the end was a disappointment. However we had a coffee in the Orangery and then went for a walk in the extensive grounds. Lovely deer and wildlife and fresh air, beautiful. Very windy, damp day but a great way to blow off the cobwebs.

If you enjoy walking you can spend ours exploring the grounds and watching the deer.... For free. The House is amazing on the inside, not cheap but this is a place where kings and queens have visited and dined over the last few 100 years. You can picnic for free ...

To be able to share this beautiful parkland and free too is such a privilege. Whatever the weather there is so much to see and marvel at with outstanding walking opportunities. Deer are here in plenty and even in the rutting season will allow you fairly close so you can observe and photograph these magnificent animals. The lake is spectacular... More

Step back in time with this family-owned mansion, dating back to Elizabethan times. The great kitchen is something to behold, along with the many bells summoning servants to all parts of the house. Renaissance paintings including some of several famous faces (Henry VIII) adorn the walls, as do some magnificent wall murals. The Heaven Room followed by the Hell Staircase... More

I visited the park in October, and was beautiful. You should reserve an hour or so to walk through the paths. Everything is well organized, clean, and well maintained. you can visit different areas and you have free option to explore that maybe are unexpected. To the main gardens there is a charge for entry. Lovely place to relax, walk... More
