I've just moved to the area and found this on trip advisor. As it's winter hours only the servants quarters and the gardens were open, but I happily wandered round for a few hours and had coffee and cake. I liked it so much I joined English heritage as I will come here often. The fern dell is magical and... More

First have a good look at the gardens, they are really well maintained. The house is very much as it was when the Thelluson family owned it , it is a real glimse into Edwardian gracious living

To those who complained: 'What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare. No time to stand beneath the boughs And stare as long as sheep or cows. No time to see, when woods we pass, Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass. No time to see, in broad daylight, Streams full of... More

Ok firstly ignore these negative reviews - people seem to have unrealistic expectations when it comes to Christmas events in general. It's Christmas you are going to have to queue - in shops, restaurants, cinemas, for Father Christmas etc it's the busiest time of the year and an English Heritage event is not going to be any different but you...

Really disappointed with the enchanted gardens. Given the amount of footfall I would have expected more effort and expense but sadly this was not the case. On the plus side the food was nice. We arrived at 6 so there wasn't a problem with queues which has been mentioned in previous posts. Staff polite as always but I would not... More

What a fabulous evening! We were able to walk around a pre arranged walkway which had been made safe enough to wheel an elderly relative in a wheelchair. The trees were lit up and looked spectacular. The front of the house was lit to wish visitors happy Christmas. Opportunities for buying hot chestnuts, mulled wine, hot chocolate, donuts etc made... More

We visited the enchanted garden on 21/12. We arrived at 4.45pm and parking was busy but well organised. Good directions on where to park. We went straight in with pre-booked tickets. Whilst the way in to the enchanted garden was not well sign posted it was not difficult to find. Once we entered the garden the illumination of the trees... More

I wouldn't waste your money. I paid over £15.00 for 2 people and I was in the queue to get in longer than I walked around the gardens. A total rip-off!!! There are more lights on my street than we walked round here. Very disappointing. Wouldn't recommend a visit at all.

We were a family of 5 visiting the Enchanted Christmas Gardens with ages from 12-74. We had a very positive experience on our visit. We arrived at 5 pm & the parking attendants were very organised. There was only 3 people in front of us to enter the gardens so no queuing really. We found the lighting of the gardens... More
