We decided to go to Hatfield House spontaneously and it did not disappoint. It was easily sign posted and good parking facilities. As you walk through there is a charming country side feel where there are little shops and restaurants. To access the parks and the house you need to pay, which is a little expensive as were only planning... More

It was a nice day, so decided to visit Hatfield House. It's well signposted, so easy to find and park. Obtained a ticket for the house and park, costs about £15 each. An audio guide to the house costs £3, it's well worth getting one for the full information tour. It is a very interesting house, with great paintings and... More

Very well laid out museum, that doesn't feel like a museum but rather a walk through someone's home- which it actually is. My companion and I were amazed at how many articles were not "under glass" but clearly available to see up close. There is so much history all around the visitor, and the docents have been employed by the... More

We visited with a party of French tourists from our twin town, who were all as captivated by the house as we were. The rooms are full of interest, many with a wow factor, and the room guides are extremely helpful. There is a wonderful collection of paintings, and the kitchen is interesting too. The grounds are beautiful and at... More

Great visit to Hatfield House, with the lovely shops in the 'Market Place' making it an ideal place to stop for a spot of lunch. The old house & church are beautiful and an ideal wedding venue (one was happening as we visited!) The grounds & house are beautifully maintained & would definitely recommend for a day out.

The house has lots of wood panelling, the gardens could have been better due to lots of weeds but at the time of visiting there was sculptures dotted around the gardens (that were for sale,the most expensive being £250,000.00, and the park was great with three walks available to do.

We spent a lovely lazy Sunday here in the Park & Gardens. One Tip. Take a picnic, the food seemed very expensive.

We started a 15 day trip to England at Hatfield House and what a start! The house is beautiful and the grounds gorgeous. We loved all the paintings throughout the house - many of them original. The staff gave us so much information on the history of the house and details on English history. We got there when the house... More

Going into these grand homes is always a pleasure and this was no exception. We also prefer homes that are still lived in and are grateful that we have the opportunity to get a private peek of history. The house was nice and we were delighted with the modern and amusing art throughout the gardens. We did not pay the... More
