Not far form where we live with ample parking. Beautifully kept whare you could imagine great Christmases. Stunning views over rolling hills. Also had a horse-drawn carriage which the kids enjoyed. Oh to be back in the '30s.

We joined a short tour which focuses on a typical Christmas gathering at Polesdon hosted by the owner Margaret Greville in the 1930' s. It was very interesting indeed and the guide clearly new an enormous amount about the house and it's mistress. The house was set up as it would have been for this event and the 30 minute... More

Good place for a walk, decent space for kids to run around so you don't feel like your children are terrorising the more sedate visitors. Has toilets after the entrance and a decent car park so much to recommend. Can get busy but nice when you come across some actors rehearsing Shakespeare on the outdoor theatre on a Summer's day...

A very beautiful house, steeped in history and amazing objects, unfortunately for us we went on a rainy day so did not see much of the gardens. The house was very good, however without the grounds it was only a quick visit, so I would recommend going when you can do both. the cafe was lovely, nice food, friendly staff.

Luckily we went on an open day, so entrance was free, but having said that I would happily pay to go back again. From the house to the amazing gardens it was a very enjoyable day out, even for my small children. There was a teddy bear hunt within the house that kept them entertained and all the staff were...

The house was given to the National Trust by Mrs Ronnie Greville in 1942, in her will. She was a very wealthy woman and an interesting character. Many of her treasures and snippets of her life are shown, together with several name dropping photos of the great and good who stayed at this her party house in the early 20th... More

I have wanted to visit Polesden Lacey for sometime and was not disappointed. We went in the winter but can imagine the venue in the summer and spending a whole day there. The house itself id amazing but more than that is the history behind the building and grounds. I am surprised that it has not been made into a... More

I have long wanted to visit Polesden Lacey, having previously only visited the car park in search of Surrey Hills Cow Parade cows, so I took visiting family members (adults, who I have had to call friends because TripAdvisor does not have a category for adult family members!) on a lovely autumn day, and we really enjoyed it. The house... More

The restaurant has a great selection of food and drinks and the staff were really helpful. Similarly the front of house staff were very welcoming. We wanted to go on a longer walk around the grounds and were offered a more detailed map for £1 which was useful. There was also an early short tour of the house before it... More
