The weather was glorious and a blue sky made a tremendous backdrop to the wonderful fountain, which alone warrants a visit to this English Heritage site. Yes, the place is a ruin, but there are ruins and ruins, this one is in such marvellous condition that I could easily imagine exactly what it was like in its heyday. The site is plenty big enough for children to let off steam without spoiling a day out for adults and there are woodland walks too. I plan to go back in snow - great Christmas card shots for photographers and the vision of rhododendrons and camellias in spring put it on my visiting list for next year. Don't miss the church - the rather plain exterior hides a real gem, and I have to be honest, the volunteers at Witley Court are some of the friendliest I've ever met.

I have been visiting this place since I was very young and apparently my grandmother and grandfather went to a ball here many years ago and before that a member of the family used to make boots for the family! There is a lovely place next door which does lovely meals and cakes etc and you are well-looked after. Lovely inside or outside and beautiful garden. Witley Court gardens are beautiful and they are finding the original gardens and bringing them back to life. At certain times of the day they turn on the Poseiden fountain on and it sounds like a train! Very interesting even though it is a ruin and in beautiful surroundings which they are improving all the time. A wonderful day out all round and apparently people get married there too!

Had lovely afternoon here the church in the grounds is amazing , it's like something from Rome worth the visit just for this alone.
The ruins themselves are huge such a shame everything was destroyed in the fire of 1937 as this would have been the place to see country wide.
Audio tours help get the feel of what life and house was like in the old days.
The fountain is powered up every hour or so and is just awe inspiring to watch we just sat there in silence as the clouds cleared and the sun came out brilliant.
We had a ploughmans tea and cake in the tea house by the church ,nice friendly staff and fresh food at fare prices so something for all.
Staff in entrance office are funny and helpful with big smiles just what you want.
Hope this helps. As for less than 7 pounds entrance what more could you ask for on a September Sunday. X
