“Nice Refurb In The Cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Since I visited in 2012, they've done a refurb in the cafe and it's now a very pleasant place to have a drink - you don't have to pay admission fees to use the cafe...and they have free Wifi in there too. If it was closer to home, this could become one of our regular coffee haunts.

This time, I had to use my wheelchair to get all round the lake - there's a good surface to the path, and it makes a pleasant, if limited walk. I would love to have been able to get up the hill to the Belvedere area, but that wasn't possible in the wheelchair.

We particularly enjoyed watching the garishly coloured squawking flocks of Ring-necked Parakeets flying around the place.

It's a pleasant place, but probably not worth making a long journey, only if you're in the area.

“The correct name is: Claremont Landscape Garden”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

An interesting Landscape Garden worth a visit. Probably better on a nice summer day rather than a grey autumn day. Some of the paths were a bit muddy in places where a wheelbarrow full of gravel could easily have sorted the problem. The Belvedere was not open when I visited.

“Highly over-priced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

NT price of £7.50 much too high for this property. Once cannot get anywhere near its only interesting feature (the Belvedere Tower), and is little more than a large park with a lake. Usually one has free access to these places.

The website states that visitors who have travelled by train to get there can have coffee at a reduced price (£1), but cafe staff could not do this and referred me to the kiosk. Why advertise this sort of gimmick if one cannot easily obtain the reduction? (And why should NT reduce the price anyway?)

“Small but perfectly formed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We are members of the National Trust and we found this to be a lovely place for an afternoon stroll. The weather was nice (which is essential) and our kids loved running around and rolling down the hills. A relatively small place, but a large lake you can walk around, with a cafe at the entrance to refuel before or after your walk (we did both!). A lovely place to spend an hour or 2, probably not much longer. When we visited there were rowing boats for hire (£5 for 20 mins I think).
