We spent an enjoyable afternoon at Hatchings. The rooms you see in the house are full of beautiful paintings and objet d'art. The stars of the show for us were the rare antique pianos. The scones in the tea rooms were delicious. We also had a pleasant stroll through the grounds. The only downside was the inefficient hand dryers in... More

A super period house set in elegant grounds. The house boasts a large collection of rare pianos and and superb art work including an original of William Shakespeare. Enjoy a leìsurly stroll around the acres of grounds.

We were given a 10 minute talk on the history of Hatchlands before we went round the 6 rooms open to the public. It was given by a knowledgeable member of staff who also answered any questions. We then wandered around ourselves. There were very interesting paintings and old keyboard instruments from as early as the 1760's-fascinating. We didn't hear... More

Wide range of instruments on view in the Cobbe Collection, pianos, harpsichords, virginals, clavichord and spinet. Only six rooms available to the public, however they are crammed full with paintings and other treasures. Worth noting that the house is only open from April to October and from 2.00pm on certain days only. Probably because it is still a family home.... More

On this occasion we took our youngest (4) grand-daughter to experience the new tree house and play area. Just the ticket and she thouroughly enjoyed herself, making lots of new friends. A great addition to this lovely place. Well done National Trust

I was really impressed with the amount of Pianos that they had, even the last piano Chopin played in Paris. Great place to visit and the cakes are great. My hubby took me for my Birthday this year. Well worth the money.

We called by to visit with a young family and received a pleasant welcome when we booked in. However, after booking in we discovered the house and gardens were closed. I just wondered why we were not informed of this on our arrival because this is what we travelled for.

Hatchlands Park was built in the 1750s and has an amazing collection of keyboard instruments as well as many fine paintings. As well as formal gardens, there are over 400 acres of parkland with marked walks, and Wizard Wix's Willow Warren with a lovely tree house, sculptures and a play area - not just fun for children! The house doesn't... More

My wife and I went on a Sunday as we'd been past it but never stopped before. We'd recently joined the National Trust so thought we'd have a look. The park is about 400 acres with marked walks ranging from 1.4km to 4km and we chose the 4km which takes in meadows, woodland and Sheepwash pond. There are several picnic... More

We visited Hatchlands on a lovely Saturday morning when we knew (from the NT app) that the house would be closed - not unreasonably as the house has a tenant and is only open at certain times. The park is delightful and we did the "long walk" (which, at 4kms, isn't that long!) around its boundary. The cafe was fine,... More
