Have been NT members for many years and visit Knighthayes regularly and love the overall ambience. The house is a very interesting gothic treasure and we find something new to enjoy there every visit. The food in the restaurant is very good with very good service.

This is a story of the decline and fall of a Victorian family, ( the Heathcoat - Amorys) and their fate is mirrored by the fortunes of this house. As National Trust properties go, this really is not that old, although it is undoubtedly one of their more interesting properties. Built on the whim of a Victorian inventor, and enterprising...

It was nice to find somewhere open out of season. There was a small cafe area set up in the east wing with delicious cakes, service very friendly. The volunteers in the house also made us feel welcome and it was interesting to see what goes on in the house during the winter, with far fewer visitors. The gardens were... More

The house itself is a splendid example of Victoriana, but in Autumn the park and gardens are unsurpassed. The Kitchen garden is a model of its kind.

We have now visited Knightshayes four times at different times of year and love it. We were never a fan of the Arts and Crafts movement but Knightshayes has changed our mind. The house is stunning as are the grounds. There is a super cafe in the old stables, these are an architectural masterpiece in themselves. A visit the the... More

Just another example of why the national trust membership is a must. Big beautiful gardens. Stunning house which the kids also enjoyed and the staff were friendly as usual. This also had a great shop too.

lovely architecture and very interesting interior and family history. Restaurant/Tea Room good. Long walk from car park to House so drop off less able bodied passengers before parking. Make good use of the lovely volunteer guides they are a mine of information.

I haven't been to Knightshayes in a while and had forgotten how stunning and impressive the Home is. We were able to view the downstairs of the house, with the upstairs closed during the colder months. The staff in the house were so friendly and informative. Christmas decorations were beginning to go up. We enjoyed walking around some of the... More
