The visitors cafe had an interesting children's play area including a castle.Long tree-lined drive with dog friendly walks and a walled garden. The interior of the house contained a history of the family who apparently retain some upper rooms in the house. Wonderful weather on this first visit which I combined with a visit to nearby Berrington Hall, also a... More

We stayed at the garden cottage for a week. The staff and volunteers could not have been more helpful. Lovely cafe, great play ground short and long marked trails in the estate. Definitely go to the Croft Castle.

Spectacular views from the clearly way-marked walks and dog friendly. A wonderful morning's walk followed by a picnic. We'll be back.

After recently becoming National Trust members we decided to try this place, an hours journey from home which wasn't too bad. Stunning scenery on the way. We arrived at opening time and wandered around the grounds, we were offered a cellar tour which we decided to do and it was very informative. There was a war event on so everyone... More

Beautiful house, superb walled garden, small play area for kids with miniature castle for them to climb over. All staff very interesting and extremely knowledgeable. Large park with plenty of interesting walks, you need more than half a day if you want to explore the park.

An NT property on way to Hereford and we thought worth a visit. Beautiful gardens about 6 acres and full of colour in its planting. Also had their own vines from which they produced their wind available to buy. Disappointed in glasshouses as it seemed a it of a mishmash and probably in development. Very interesting small church near the... More

A pleasant building and setting, and an ideal day trip if done in partnership with nearby Berrington Hall. The presence of the local Ludlow Hunt in a marquee on the lawn did not affect our visit. As usual staff friendly and informative.

Staying with friends brings its own challenges! Found a (NT) place that lets dogs in; positively invited. Had to be on the lead during the formal gardens & tea rooms but hey that's good. Then off to the parkland, more like the lost forest in our case. A route march including steep slopes, after lots of rain, made this quite... More

When you start with a castle based play area what can go wrong? Trying to get my five year old away to enjoy the rest of the facilities was the biggest challenge! The castle itself was great and the natural play area was exceptional! Excellent rope swings!! If you're anywhere near here head over for a great day out.
