Fantastic children's play area. Lovely park to walk around. Nice stately home. You can park fro free and have full access tot he park for free. You only pay for the house and walled garden. Also a new high rope attraction (which you pay for).

We are fortunate in being able to walk from our home to this beautiful place. At its heart are a wonderful lake which you can walk around and the well-preserved stately home that is open to the public for a small charge. There are wooded areas and large open grassed areas where children can play and kick their footballs to their hearts' content. Facilities are good - there is a large play area for younger children and a cafe. Having said that, there there are several much quieter areas where it is easy to step back in time and imagine what life used to be like. This is a fantastic amenity for the people of Swindon.

A huge space for a family to kick back and relax, take a picnic or bbq. Good play area and even a 'jungle park' climbing area for the kids to keep them occupied!

Being only 10 minutes away by car, walking around Lydiard is a wonderful way to pass some time or simply to take time out from the trials of life
