Westport house was a lovely day out, it is signposted.Once you park and pay you can move your car nearer to the house which is handy if you have a picnic packed. I had 2 small children 4&6, they loved the swan on the lake, Humptey Dumpty was a great photo spot for them with Westport house in the background.... More

What a fantastic spot for kids. We went there on a rainy Saturday for a daytrip and had a fantastic time. So much to do. The pirate ship and log flume are great fun and you can go on them as many times as you like. One thing I want to really highlight is the staff. They are just fantastic.... More

Had a great time at Westport house. Something for all ages to enjoy from the swan peddle boats to the mini train journey. The house is beautifully kept and worth a look.
