A real insight into the process of building a mansion. This was enjoyed by both my wife and I while the children enjoyed being a prince and princess for the afternoon.

I had heard about this from a friend. We arrived early afternoon and took the blue route to the house. It's a nice walk, down hill that was a bit muddy. Not surprising as the area has had to much rain. Just be careful if you aren't sure footed. We knew the house wasn't open, but it was still worth... More

Fascinating to visit the part finished building and get an insight into the construction methods and craftsmanship of the builders of Woodchester mansion. Would recommend taking the free guided tour of both external and internal features of the building. Knowledgable guide brought the building to life with interesting historical and architectural insights. Pleasant tea room with home made cakes rounds... More

The mansion is pretty much unique within the UK and well worth a visit. I've also attended a great Halloween event there which, although very cold, was a really good night out.

this property is a must when you visit the stroud area- its an unfinished masterpiece of architecture the walk around the grounds is beautiful too- with several maped walks which vary in distance good walking shoes advised. if children present- clothing which is mud proof and fun loving fee paid if visiting the inside of the house grounds free
