We visited this wonderfully atmospheric place a couple of weeks ago and were lucky enough to be the only visitors for most of our visit. The ruined house is wonderful as are the decorated rooms. The gardens too are well presented and attractive. And that's it really - there's only a small shop, no activities, no guides: but that's the... More

We both found this really interesting - to see the bare bones of a historic house was so different and to have some of the rooms restored gave such good contrast.

A wonderfully impressive building although part is in ruins you can still imagine the days of grandeur as the house was intended. Fantastic architecture and interesting history. Free audio guides have just enough information and take you on an hour tour ( longer if you want to stop and browse ). Gardens have been restored from a 'field' to their... More

Most impressive. Although the rooms are unfurnished the extensive decoration of stonework and architecture was very interesting. Good historical connections help generate the interest.

Really nice gardens & the building is a mix of in real decay & then other parts are furnished. Handset guide is brilliant, helps bring it to life more than board after board of reading. Well worth a visit, two hours would be plenty of time, one hour for the audio tour & then time to explore the gardens.

Beautiful building, lovely grounds for a picnic, friendly staffs, amazing peacocks in full display, very interesting audio guide. Well worth the family ticket price £17ish.

Had a 2 night stay inPeacock cottage with my sister and mother. It was charming EH provide a welcome basket I didn't expect one for 2 night stay but there it was. The house was closed but we could walk round the grounds. The peacocks were a bonus a very welcome one at that.

Went to Kirby Hall on Easter Sunday when it was very quiet and much more enjoyable. The building itself is beautiful with only half of it roofed. The gardens were beautiful and calming and would certainly visit again.

We visited as it was one of the few stately home type places open before Easter. In fact that was why we had chosen to go to Corby. I hadn't realised until we got there that a lot of it is a ruin so even the rooms that are intact do not have anything much in them. However, the architecture... More

Been here a couple of times and would gladly go back again. Surrounded by countryside it's very calm and peaceful. The grounds are well maintained and there's plenty of room to spread out a blanket and have a picnic without bumping into thirty other people who've had the same idea. For me it was a perfect place to sit and... More
