Lovely well kept gardens and children's play area. Beautiful walk around the lake.
Interesting visit around the museum and it was free.

Had a great day out today in the grounds of this lovely country house. The walk around the park was beautiful and the cafe facilities were above average and way exceeded national trust cafes. We went into the hall and could not believe it was free of charge. There was a lot to see and we spent an hour looking round. The guide in the kitchen area was very friendly and informative explaining things to us and it really added to the experience. The grounds themselves were lovely with bluebells and a smell of wild garlic. The only gripe I have is that you have to have a credit card to pay for your parking, I really dislike it when places refuse cash. The place is such a great day out given all you have to pay for is very well priced parking and if you wish to eat there is is very reasonable.

Enjoyed a sunny but cold day out walking around this lovely area! There’s a great park for children, availability to look inside the hall, fab dog walks and a cafe and a bar to choose from! A great place for all to enjoy!

What a fabulous day out. Great grounds to walk round and the views of Doncaster. Very knowledgeable staff and the museum is great display and you must watch the two videos one on the history of the house and the mines in the area. Lovely food and they have gluten free options . Thank you

Excellent short stop with kids during long drive on A1. Well thought out area with good service and nice food. Very helpful staff taught me about the history which was an added bonus.

What a lovely place. Fantastic house/museum and the grounds make for a great walk. There is also a lovely playground and the eating places are great value for really nice food. And to top it off you only pay a small amount for parking. Will definitely go again.

Visited here for the first time today. We visited from York. Wanted to escape York for a few hours for a cheap and cheerful rainy day activity.

We had an excellent day out! A very warm welcome from a lovely lady in the house. She told us the history of the house and also understood our 6 year old needed entertaining. She was brilliant with her! Thank you!

The house was great, lots of things to keep us all interested and I particularly liked the kitchen! Lots of walking round the beautiful lakes, watched the ducks, braved the play park in the rain and ate delicious food in the cafe.

We will definitely be returning in the summer and to spend longer exploring the gardens.

The only thing I struggled to find on their website was parking information (photo in the review) . There is a small parking charge but entry to the house and gardens is free. The food in the restaurant is very reasonably priced and there is a children menu.

If you haven't visited you must! Cannot wait to return. Thanks again.

Beautiful walk today, visited here whilst visiting our daughter!
Beautiful with the pooches, has a lively little cafe, served through a hatch and toilets that were very clean. The walk around was a view! Walked down the hill, which is quite steep so people need to stick to the paths if difficulty walking, we walked around the lake, stunning bridge and was so dog friendly, will definitely be going back here as even the 'regular' walkers were polite, some places people won't even say hello! Very scenic, roughly about 1.6 miles but can walk around more of the park, little woogle had just had enough that's all.

It’s always so nice to visit Cusworth whether it’s raining ( usually is) or not.
To see your doggies sprinting down the hill to the lake is just so nice to see!
Such a wonderful expanse of grounds to explore, and after you’ve finished,
pop into the doggie friendly cafe for a delightful coffee and a piece of scummy cake!
