My husband and I visited Canons Ashby in July. The walk around the property was great and the gardens were well presented.

Lovely old building with lovely spacious grounds. A nice little outside eating space and toilets ( good Covid protocols in place ) Probably an hours stopover ( 2 max) but ideal for a journey break as in our case

Staff were very helpful and gave lots of background information about the Dryden family and the history of the house. I'd highly recommend to anyone thinking of visiting. Credit to the trust for keeping the house open to visitors as well as the grounds. The house and cafe all had appropriate covid measures in place too.

Lovely National Trust Manor House, gardens and tea rooms. Fairly small, and even walking the grassland only took an hour. Interesting evidence of open field system farming. The house was largely unchanged from 1800 onwards and shows the reach of a middle class of the age. All three are now reopened, with a strange mix of Corona measures. The one way system to the car park enforces 100m distancing, and ticket office is one in one out. Tea room staff were excellent with full Corona safe masked up handling of food etc. None of the five staff in the house were wearing masks though, so this area was high risk.

Response from CanonsAshbyNT, Marketing officer at Canons Ashby
Responded Oct 13, 2020
Hi Anthony I'm glad you enjoyed most of your visit and thank you for coming. The law is currently that although catering and shop staff need to wear face coverings, that this does not currently apply to the teams of visitor attractions, as long as there is plenty of space for them to social distance. We are following the government guidelines, and encourage volunteers to wear masks if they want to. There is some more information about reopening and Coronavirus that may be of interest, here: https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/features/reopening-and-coronavirus-faqs Have a good week.

Visited on 27 December 2019. I just drove back from my peak District holiday to London and thought to stop somewhere for walk. To be honest it was rather a nightmare than a walk. The weather was winter-wet and the estate is a countryside estate, so better to be prepared with wellies. The house was closed, so I could only take a few pictures in the garden and then I tried to walk around in the trails which are on the map. But soon I realised, that I am not prepared for that and headed back to the house, where we can find toilets, shop and tea-room. I have hiking boots, but not wellies, and the mud was a few inches deep around everywhere. So even to visit the church on the side was a little mud wrestling. The garden is not too big and because the house was closed, so for me the whole visit wasn't more than an hour wandering. And another hour to brush and clean off the mud from myself, before I sit in the beige carpeted car... Probably a dry sunny summer day would worth better...
