We just had the best scones I have ever eaten at the Harrington Tea Room at Elvaston Castle. This is our second visit during this trip to the U.K.

Really enjoy spending time at elvaston castle! There is so much fun to be had for adults and children and so many nooks and crannies for the children to explore. Lots of seating is also provided for picnics etc.

Was really excited about this trip. However although parking is free it's at the entrance so you have to all through the car park. Don't know how you get to the cafe via wheelchair. Won't be going back

Elvaston is great for a family trip out. It has a beautiful lake, which you can walk or ride around, and a fantastic open picnic area. It has a lot of woodland and pretty features. The cafe is also nice and affordable. I would recommend a trip to Elvaston Castle.

Did not eat in the ordinary cafe and you could not go in the castle, but the grounds are so beautiful, surprises round every corner. Well worth a visit.

A nice place to visit. Kiddies love it for a run around. Expensive cafe and shop and get rid of the ice cream van on the car park. What a horrible man and 3 pound for a cornet is disgusting. People come to the castle with children and these prices are rediculous other than that if it's a nice day... More
