Kelmarsh country fair

Really good day out, dog events, birds of prey, clothing, antiques, crafts and food, even a couple of bars. Lots to see and do for all. Weather was great too😊

Visited Kelmarsh over the Easter weekend and was very impressed at the transformation of the tearoom since my last visit. The food and drinks were first class and were served as a proper tearoom should. Traditional cups and saucers and a wide selection of teas. The home made cakes and sandwiches were outstanding with generous portions. Whilst I can relate... More

Thought we would pop into Kelmarsh Hall for a walk around gardens and a coffee and cake. In the past the coffee and cake could be a bit of a gamble. However pleasantly surprised today to find tearoom under new management . Proper menu, wide selection of cakes and fabulous sausage rolls. I can see this becoming regular drop in... More

£15 to get in a fair. Everything a ripp off.. Virtually no guns for sale No Gunmakers row because the dealers can't afford the pitch prices. Overpriced food and drinks. Typical Britain.... Sad

As a regular visitor to Kelmarsh hall the whole family were looking forward to the start of the new season and some more wonderful cream teas. We were not disappointed. We were greeted by Maria who was presented us with the most amazing display of freshly made sandwiches, scones and cakes all of which were delicious and appear to have... More

The hall is lovely and well kept, but you only get at tour of the downstairs as the upstairs is roped off. Having said that the tour lasted an hour and the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The gardens are well manicured and full of dahlias of all colours-stunning. There is a small but nice gift shop and a... More

Although I had checked on the website prior to visiting, we were not aware that there was a festival taking place in the grounds of the hall and gardens: this meant that a portion of the gardens was not accessible. It would have been a good idea to mention this on the events section of the website - I'm sure... More

First impressions in the entrance hall were not great - in need if some tender loving care - rest if house was OK but it rapidly between clear that this place is events orientated rather than particularly interesting for visitors. I guess they have to balance the books. One very sparse room even had recessed spotlights in the ceiling -... More

My 6 1/2 year old son and myself went along for a first time visit to nearby Kelmarsh Hall for a day of storytelling in the garden and what a day it was!! Storyteller Tom had both children and adults alike completely enthralled with his wondrous and magical tales in the lovely surroundings of the walled garden. My son likened... More

Had another afternoon last week in gardens, all this moaning about the garden/house I really don't think is fair. Lovely views across lake. Hard working staff, who always are helpful and happy. Very nice tea room and shop. Simply menu, I went with the quiche this time for a change, I good choice, no room for cake, all looked very... More
