Me and my partner took a child to see santa and the experience wad amazing. The santa and his grotto was realistic and the whole run up to it was good, writing a letter, receiving a present, getting a letter back, mulled wine and mince pies for the adults. The gardens are beautiful and very well looked after, the dear... More

Visited Wentworth at the beginning of the Summer. Lived in the area all my life and never heard of it. There are extensive grounds to walk in, perfect on a Summers Day. No vehicles are allowed into the grounds, including riding your bike so if you are planning a visit and have cleats remember your cleat covers as walking on... More

There is a cafe which serves some lovely venison sausages on a baguette. Always busy. We used to take our nephew to the playground which is good... More

I will be back in this beautiful piece of man made landscape tomorrow as a trainee Park Ranger. I am impressed not so much by the architecture as the landscape which is I feel the most impressive expression of human art.

We were really surprised at what was on offer at Wentworth Castle!!!! Just beautiful!! We went on a walk round the estate and even down into Barnsley round the reservoir and on to the Trans Pennine Trail. Great History behind the estate and some interesting obelisks and other monuments to see. They also have a gorgeous café and children's play... More
