The NT brochure extolls this garden as a fantastic landscape gem to visit but we found that it was tiny, half of it was fenced off for grass reseeding and being a sunny day it was totally overrun with families. There is one signpost on...More

Thank you for your message. Some select small area of the garden may be closed off over the next few weeks to allow the grass to recover following particularly high footfall over Easter. As soon as the grass seed has settled, we will reopen these...More

We visited on the Tuesday after bank holiday, so very few people there -- a good time to go, as it is normally packed on a sunny summer weekend. The walks around the grounds are excellent, lots of birds to see, especially Egyptian Geese with...More

Claremont is a lovely place for a stroll in a beautiful landscape, and have coffee/cake in the cafe. We tend to get there early, sometimes the car park fills quickly at busy times. The landscaped garden is beautifully kept with lovely views and vistas.

A pleasant lake and walk for a Sunday stroll. A great place to take kids to run around. A good cafe outside for a coffee and cake.

Well done National Trust on another superb location - the addition of the newest natural play area at the top of the mound added another hour or so of clambouring and den building to our visit with a 5 and 7 year old. The cafe...More

Even on a damp dull Sunday we enjoyed this beautiful estate. It really is lovely, lake, amphitheatre, gardens, woods, and of course the café. The great advantage of weather like that is that there is plenty of peace and quiet...not that many visitors. We'd been...More

Hi Jayne, we’re really sorry to hear this and will be speaking to the staff who were on shift that day. I believe our Assistant Manager has already been in touch. Claremont is very proud to be a dog friendly site and we really enjoy...More
