I visited Capesthorne with my young grandson and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. We were there on a Monday, so paid only £4.50 for the car which gave us access to the grounds, chapel and tearoom and then an extra £2 to visit the house. I thought this was very good value, compared to the prices one pays elsewhere. We arrived just after noon and the house doesn't open until 1.30pm but we had brought a picnic and had a walk down to the lake. The gardens looked lovely and very well-kept.
The guides in the house were very pleasant, asking my grandson his name and pointing out things which might be of particular interest to a child. There aren't a great many rooms open, considering the size of the house, but we especially liked the child's room and the box room!
We went into the tearoom for an ice cream; the choice of sandwiches and cakes seemed rather limited but everything looked fresh and the seating area was very clean and comfortable.
All-in-all, a very pleasant afternoon.
