Took advantage of the free audio guide which allowed one to opt for more detailed information on particular subjects. The grounds are extremely well kept, even the trees in the orchard are labled. Saw lots of birds and insects, well worth a visit.

We attended a wedding at this marvellous National Trust site. It was a warm summer evening and we were in a marquee on the ground opposite the ruins. The sunset through the old house was amazing. I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding but also as a great day out but as there isn't any shelter, go on... More

Although an unfinished lodge the architecture was stunning and the symbolism in and outside was of particular interest. there are grounds to look around that were laid out to walk and immerse in the way the owner Sir Thomas Tresham had designed for the views and to contemplate.

Lyveden New Bield comprimises of two main elements; the garden lodge and the Elizabethan pleasure grounds. The garden lodge was planned by Sir Thomas Tresham, and is full of assertions of his dangerous Catholic faith (as is nearby Rushton Triangular Lodge; also worth a visit). However, his dream of walking from his manor house at the bottom (now tenanted and... More

Lovely walks around the woodland area nearby made this a nice day out. Not much to see at the 'house' really.

Love visiting Lyvden New Bield. Beautiful setting, haunting building with a fascinating history. Lovely walks through the gardens, orchard, fields and woods. Take a picnic and visit the tea room, we had tea and cake in the garden to the sound of a mandolin and guitar.

We had a perfect time at Lyveden. The sun shone and the blue sky was dotted with cotton-wool clouds so we started with a great advantage. The beautiful Northamptonshire countryside spreads around the place and in retrospect I don't think I could see another building despite a vista that stretched for miles. A really lovely spot. The New Beild itself... More

We arrived on rather a cold and miserable day. Perhaps I should have done my research first, because we were unprepared for a shell of a house with very little else to do. The tearoom was pleasant and the highlight of our visit. I was told that this is a more of a walking around the grounds visit than a... More

A quote amazing structure. The ponytailpoet would advise you to take the audio tour device, and then try to work things out for yourself! The whole structure is covered with symbols and secret signs that to a modern scholar are very transparent indeed. Just give it a go ! Built in Elizabethan times as a 'up you' to the protestant...

We visited as a journey break on our way home from Norfolk. Fascinating place with a good (free) audio guide. Well worth going on down towards the "Old Bield" and looking at the replanted Orchard. EXCELLENT Cream tea served at the small cafe at reasonable price!!
