Fantastic place to visit, for young and old. Lots to see and do in the house, and loads of perfect woodland and park to walk round.

It was pouring with rain and 10 degrees when I pre-booked tickets and I wondered if we had made a mistake. The house is not yet open and everything is outdoors but by the time we arrived, the rain had stopped and later the sun came out warming us all up. We had never visited Attingham before but were pleasantly surprised by all that was available even in these Covid days. The welcome was warm, the café serves hot and cold food, something that many other National Trust properties have not yet managed with seating inside and under cover outside. The park has four main walks, most with variations and we enjoyed strolling through the deer park, spotting the deer and through the woods. The stream the other side has loads of logs for the intrepid to cross and the huge open play area is a great asset in these days of playing socially distanced. Though we were warned the walled garden had suffered due to lack of maintenance during lockdown, I thought it was looking pretty good – bearing in mind the time of year. We had never visited Attingham before but I am sure we will return if we are ever in this part of the world again.

Booked online a breeze checked weather forecast best day predicted Sunday jobs a goodun Arrived kids excited full of pent up energy Attingham has the Field or Play brilliant for energetic kids. Log piles to clamber over swings for all ages groups mounds to clamber over concrete drain tunnels to crawl along vast expanse of field to run about This is a superb place ideal in the spring and summer NT has also a food wagon serving hot and cold snacks cakes scones and drinks to suit all tastes My only gripe is that there is nowhere for families to sit whilst their offspring have a great time racing about We had to lean and sit on two concrete table tennis tables???? Wierd do people take table tennis bats and ball ?? They do have picnic tables in the orchard in the next field but you cannot see your charges from there due to hedging A few picnic table dotted around would be great for some of us less nimble All in all a great visit despite shortcomings

A lovely park with a lot of space and variety of different length walks around the estate. If you enjoy countryside walks with the opportunity to get fairly close to deer, this is a good place to visit. There is the opportunity to get out there and away from others or to simply visit the play areas and attractions for the younger ones. Great for a day out.
