Owner description: Welcome to Ragley; the family home of the 9th Marquess and Marchioness of Hertford and their children. If a fun family day out is what you're looking for then Ragley Hall, Park & Gardens really does have something for everyone! Children of all ages will be entertained for hours within our Adventure Wood and 3D maze and with boating on Ragley Lake, an 'Artist in Residence' and a Woodland Walk; it's easy to see why Ragley is one of Warwickshire's most popular family days out. If gardens are your passion then you just have to explore Ragley Gardens! The 10 hectares of 'Capability' Brown gardens surrounding Ragley Hall are diverse and display a spectacular array of snowdrops in the winter, tulips and daffodils in the spring and a Rose Garden and Prairie Garden throughout the summer months. Also look out for the Sculpture Collection which further enhance the Ragley landscape. It includes sculptures of the Hertford children and even one of a family dog!

really good adventure park for children with challenging equipment. The maze was great fun. The weather was fine so we had a picnic. Plan to return to view the house and formal gardens

Very friendly welcome from all the staff. Beautiful house, unlike many stately homes we've visited this one is well lit with natural light and on a sunny day this added greatly to the effect of the wonderful colour schemes in the rooms we saw. The mural on the staircase is just stunning. The house is available to view on a... More

Lovely grounds and facilities. Didn't visit the house on this occasion, but will be back. Great experience for my 11 year old nephew.

What a poor Food Festival at Ragley Hall last Sunday - overpriced, few food samples and lots of fried food. The Great British Food Festival that organises these events nationwide need to re-think this type of event if it is to continue. Admission at £7.50 - but to get what? - a tiny recipe book on arrival and little else.... More

We had a great time last weekend at Ragley, the halls lakeside was a lovely setting. I thought it was great value and ended up being a full day out - we were really impressed with the stalls in side, had a tasty burger and a drink on the field overlooking the lake, went to see chef demos and we...

Went today, Saturday 13 September, to the Food Festival at Ragley Hall. Luckily, like most, I'd purchased a voucher for two people at £8:00. Normal entry price = £7:50 each. Expected something more professional than two marquee and a number of small individual stands. Appreciate a number of the products on offer were of good quality, hand made etc, which... More

A summer celebration of Music, Fireworks, Cavalry and Cannons with an amazing fly past by a classic Spitfire! What an evening of great food, Entertainment and for me the highlight was the Spitfire fly past! My partner booked this for us as a treat and it was a great time with lots to see and do. We took our own... More
