Lyveden New Bield was a rather unusual destination for us in the summer, but well worth it. The unfinished house is the main attraction, and great to walk around, but there is more to the visit than this. We also enjoyed the countryside walks, trying the maze, walking up the hill surrounded on three sides by the unfinished moat, walking... More

There is a large carpark close to the site. There are lots of open space but plenty of nice spots to sit and contemplate. The orchard is still young but coming along nicely. There is a good tearoom too.

We loved our brief but peaceful visit to Lyveden New Bield. Easy enough to find, but due to its remoteness, we struggled to get signal to navigate us back out of the area! The building itself is very intriguing and well kept. The staff who greeted us were very warm and friendly and freezing winters day and they made us... More

We walked from Wadenhoe and it was lovely. The grounds are beautiful. I could have spent hours there taking photos and exploring. There is a little podium with a book explaining what it was going to be. I want to go back in the summer and picnic!

On our drive up to the property we saw a Red Kite flying low over the fields. Always a good start to a visit! After passing through a very imformative reception we visited the tearoom for a much needed bowl of warming soup on this cold windy day. Sadly it was not cake time for us and i think we... More

This unfinished building is several miles away down a minor road but is well sign posted. There is a large car park and the grounds are extensive. The three story mansion house, surrounded by small moat was never completed as the owner spent the rest of his days in the Tower of London. The staff are friendly and obliging but... More

There is plenty of room for everyone. There are lots of walks to do. In the wood and in and around the attraction. It offers a bit for everyone. Historic and children. It offers children's trails to discover more information.
