Owner description: Flanked by the river Manifold, hanging Hinckley woods and the rounded hills of Thorpe Cloud, Ilam Park is an enchanting oasis of tranquillity. Remove yourself from the rugged landscape of the countryside as you are immersed in the formal grandeur of the manicured landscape.A walk along Paradise walk, is a welcome from the tough walks in the countryside, the walk is level with only a few gentle inclines and steps, making it accessible to all. After your walk visit the stable blocks to pick up some sumptuous gifts or great walk routes in the shop, before heading to the tea room for some cosy and traditional food.Pay and display car park on site - Free parking for National Trust members.

“Stunning views - great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Ilam Park is an excellent place to visit. National trust car park and tea room. We hope to visit again to have a longer look around. The village has some lovely properties and there is a lovely church. Lots of great walks around. Definately worth a visit.

“Ilam park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Fabulous place to visit although the weather was terrible. If you are looking to stay at Youth Hostel make this place a priority.
Lunch in cafe was lovely and good value for money

“Starting to display her Autumn Colours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Once again a visit to the Derbyshire Dales would not be complete without a stroll/Climb around this beautiful parkland. The leaves are starting to turn and the tree lines are becoming a kaleidoscope of autumnal hues...well worth a visit in the few weeks.

“Pleasant place to stroll - YHA manor in a pretty village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Didn't spend too much time here, but it could bear a much more thorough visit I'm sure. Lovely stone built manor / hall in lovely countryside, and at the centre of a small village. The house is a YHA, so not all of it is visitable, unless you are staying of course - and what a place to stay!
