The welcome we received exceeded any that we had experienced in twenty years of membership. The first person gave us the biggest smile, and immediately recognised our life membership cards (which are very important to us). Each person in the wecome team 'did their bit' and then thoughfully introduced us to the next person in the chain. All three people in that chain seemed to be close friends , and we felt like each one was treating as though they were welcoming us into their garden. The essential information was repeated by the next person, so we heard the impotant facts twice... brilliant idea. We were priviledged to use your brand new car park. (I didn't see a sign to drive in, so parked up outside by the roundabout..... then followed another car in) The curved walk up the driveway to the entrance to the garden was beautiful. The gardens make a close connection to the farmland around the gardens, and the open fences with nearby cattle make the gardens feel so relaxed and borderless The apple display under the gazebo was interesting... and very educational . Autumn is a wonderful season at Gunby.... We shall try to return in a different season to see the differences thank you We were happy to support the tea room

We had a nice afternoon stroll around the gardens at Gunby Hall this week. There were plenty of autumnal colours for the keen photographer. The apple display was interesting and there was a variety of colourful flowers to make the walk interesting. There is a one way system in place, but we were there on a quiet afternoon anyway so we didn't come across many other visitors. We purchased a takeaway hot drink with afternoon tea (scones and cream) from the cafe kiosk and it was lovely sitting in the sun in the courtyard after our walk. Note that the car park is on the left just through the Gunby gates and then you walk up the tree-lined drive to the courtyard and gardens. We were met in the car park by some very helpful Gunby volunteers who gave us information about the site. We will be making a return visit.

A beautiful day and a lovely autumn walk round the gardens. As a venue it is fabulous but I am really disappointed about the cafe prices. One coffee, one apple juice, 2 shortbread fingers and 3 flapjacks to take home just short of £20, I thought £3.25 for a piece of flapjack (no plate or washing up!) and a pkt with two biscuits for £2.75 is outrageous and now these treats are cost prohibitive so it's a flask in the car for us I'm afraid.

We were lucky to pick a very pleasant sunny day to visit Gunby gardens. The route around the property was marked out in a one way system which can be difficult if someone ahead is stopped & its difficult to pass them but that's life at the moment. Very nice gardens with lots to see.

We were met at the entrance and given a brief overview of what to expect at Gunby. As one of our party is disabled, we were allowed to drive down to 500 yd path to drop off/pick up close to the hall and then go back and park the car in the car park. Due to Covid, the house was closed unfortunately, but we had an enjoyable stroll around the gardens and a take away coffee from the cafe kiosk. Tables were set up, spaced out, in the courtyard and also in the more sheltered stable building which is where we sat as it was a bit windy that day. There was a 'one in/one out' set up for the toilets in the courtyard and sanitiser provided outside. The Gents doubled as the disabled toilet and I do think this needs improvement - there should be a dedicated disabled toilet. It was a pleasant place to visit if you have a couple of hours.
