Nice hot day, lovely family day out. We took a picnick and spent the whole day there. Lots to see and do and lots of memories brought back from when i was little and lived in Kippax. Parking a bit expensive.

Never got chance to see the house but the other attractions made up for it. Only one criticism was the Stable block toilets. They were in a dire state and... More

Only downside is it's slightly expensive for the house etc for what it is and so is the cafe but worth it... More

I was aghast to hear, that for this size of house, with so many rooms and accommodation for so many, there was only one bathroom. The gardens and the landscaping again... More

Called in here one Sunday hoping to have a walk somewhere nice as the weather was lovely. Had not expected both entry and parking to be free of charge so that was a pleasant surprise upon arrival! The grounds are large and spacious with various walks through the gardens, around a lake and through woods. There are play areas for... More

Lovely grounds. Beautiful house. Had lots of lovely days here. Walk up to the temple. Nice play area for the children. Take a picnic and make a day of it. No expense unless you want to enter the farm. Good value.

Love this place. The park is well kept, the farm is good, with lots to see and do, the playgrounds are huge and enough for all ages. Cafe near the farm is reasonable and good variety of food. Parking is free.. All you need is the good weather! Worth a visit!
