The Golden Gates Lodge more than lived up to its 4* (Tourist Board) billing. It's extremely comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen and being situated in the midst of Eastnor Estate, boasts walks aplenty literally on its doorstep. Give it a try - you'll so very pleased you did!

Been here a few times over recent years - always a nice day out and plenty to do even if the weather is not good. They do a really special fireworks event annually, just a shame the weather was so bad this year.

Eastnor Castle is a beautiful place to visit with children and dogs. No "Keep off the grass" signs here.

My wife and I arrived early for the Land Rover experience so decided to have a light lunch in Eastnor Castle cafe. Everything is freshly prepared using beautiful ingredients. The menu is simple but adequate and the service friendly and attentive. The surroundings are clean and bright giving a satisfying experience combined with the quality food, we were very satisfied.

We attended Eastnor castle for my nieces wedding! It was truly perfect! The setting is stunning. The staff, the food and attention to detail was faultless. The whole day from start to finish was magical and a lot of that was down to all at Eastnor Would definitely recommend this for a wedding venue

We went to visit Eastnor a couple of years ago but it was not open, this time we checked online and booked our tickets at the same time. I would advise everyone to check the opening times before visiting to save disappointment as it is not open every day. We were lucky it was a beautiful day so we were... More

Well worth the entrance fee to this delightful spot. Dog friendly both outdoors and even in the castle! (must be the only National Trust property that is?) Wonderful setting of large lake and trees. Plenty of places to walk and for children to elt off steam. Hidden woodland playgrounds with half life sized land rover and tractor. Also when we... More
