Attingham is only 5 miles from our house and so is within easy reach for us with our grandchildren. The walk through the woods to the children's playground - recently upgraded by the staff with the usual swings etc but also with many climbing features and tunnels for children of ages 3 - 10 particularly. For the more popular times of year there is the 'Greedy Pig' cafe in the very fruitful orchard where in Autumn there is an Apple Festival. The walk continues either along the banks of the River Tern or through the Deer Park. It is all very natural with discreet improvements such as good pathways and bridges and lovely views of the surrounding countryside. There are frequent seasonal trails for children to follow and the staff have taken great pains to make the whole estate an enjoyable family outing.
The house is also very interesting but really for the older visitor (18+). It is always evident that the staff care greatly about Attingham and the management are keen to make the visitor experience as good as possible. The renovation of the Hall is a priority and is proceedinga pace and the restoration of the walled garden is truly a labour of love for those volunteers who work in it.
In a word - brilliant!
