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

Lovely house and grounds. Beautiful walks through the woods. There were a lot of cars in the car park so we thought it was going to feel busy and crowded but because the grounds are so big it was really quiet. Very good shop full of lovely Christmas gifts and decorations some of them very unusual. We will go back... More

Gorgeous house on beautiful grounds with a gorgeous garden. We only got to see the bottom floor as they did not have enough National Trust volunteers to open the top floor. The bottom floor was breath taking. Can only imagine was the top floor was like. Lots of parking. Lunch and coffee in the cafe was very nice. Great day.... More
