We visited and what a gem we found, the house has a distnquished history and the guides in each room made you feel welcome and... More

We were staying in the area with family and decided to spend the day at the castle. Unfortunately it was a very wet day which meant we didn't see the gardens but the castle was magnificent. Our guide Sally Lewis was superb and her knowledge and enthusiasm brought the story of the castle to life. What a wonderful history the... More

We visited the castle on a Thursday on our way to Bourne, we were very impressed with the café as we had lunch prior to our visit around the Castle and grounds, we were there the rest of the afternoon and can recommend it for a great day out.

Great place to cycle or walk and children to play safely, the gardens are beautiful and well maintained. As the weather was so good we didn't enter the Castle, so can't comment. Good cycling route for families with young children with different routes and levels of difficulty. We cycled the black route and didn't see a sole around most of... More

We visited on a Sunny Sunday afternoon, only visiting the gardens this time. We will return for a visit around the castle and the lake. The grounds are the ideal place to take the family for a day out or for couples and friends to enjoy. There are gardens to wonder through, a woodland walk, adventure playground, 3,000 acres of...

We live quite close to grimsthorpe but had never visited until a few years ago. It has now become our favourite day out venue. The house is simply wonderful with expert guides to inform you. The grounds are great for walking the dog (on a long lead) with a beautiful lake to walk around . What more could you want... More
