About
Created as the perfect house in the perfect setting, Berrington has many secrets to uncover. Here in one of Henry Holland’s first houses, you can explore the family rooms and walk in the servants’ footsteps down the back stairs, moving around the house unseen by the family and guests. You will find out what happened to William Kemp, LordCawley’s butler, and discover the anguish of a grieving mother during the First World War. Alternatively why not join a below-stairs tour to see if you would have liked being a servant at Berrington?

    Lovely Place
    It's a long time since we went to Berrington Hall. They were doing a bit of conversation work, so had a little bit of a different route round the house. A couple of the rooms were shut, due to work being done. Such a lovely place to visit at anytime of the year.

    Lovely visit
    As we arrived early for the house which opens @11am we looked around the walled gardens and second hand bookshop. The walled gardens were fascinating. I would love to visit later in the year to see how the gardens look when the seasons change. The gentleman who greeted us at the door was really friendly and informative. The lady who was looking after the dining room was also very friendly. Other members of staff were very pleasant. This was a lovely place to visit. The information regarding the renovations was very interesting as was the information concerning the installation of a biomass boiler. The views from the grounds are stunning.

    One of the best National Trust properties we have visited.
    All the volunteers were amazing, very friendly and helpful. The house was great, the gentleman on the door was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was a lot of fun to try on some of the period outfits in one of the first floor rooms. Nice views from the first floor. The gardens are lovely. There are plenty of picnic tables in the walled garden for you to sit and relax. We took our own small picnic and sat amongst the apple trees to have our lunch. There is a tea-room/cafe in the courtyard which looked nice. We also walked into the curved wall area to see the art/sculptures. It would be nice to see more art in this area as some parts looked a bit bare. We strolled around the lake and were lucky to see quite a few ducklings and goslings. We had a really nice day and would visit again.

    A brilliant day out!
    We had a lovely day at Berrington Hall. The house itself was very interesting with lots of information to read and brilliant, knowledgeable volunteers, especially the lady who helps with the sewing. We were also able to walk through the basement rooms. The grounds and views are also lovely. We walked to the lake and saw goslings and cygnets.

    Beautiful residence
    Been meaning to go here for a while now and we were not disappointed. Visited on one of the recent warm sunny days. None NT members so £14 each. Fabulous ‘small’ house (well it was a holiday home) with lovely gardens and absolutely stunning views across the Herefordshire countryside. Looks like there are some lovely walks around the grounds so we will be going back to explore more. Take a picnic and ‘drink in’ the countryside. We loved it here because it wasn’t a massive opulent house with too much to take in. Now if Carls**rg (don’t know if I can advertise?) did country houses………

    A 2-4-1 voucher opportunity
    As we had a 2-4-1 voucher to use, we chose to visit Berrington. What a good decision! On a warm, partly sunny day, we parked at the overflow car park and made our way to the well sign posted entrance. A warm and friendly welcome was received from all members of the team. Sadly the coffee from the stables cafe was not so good. The walled kitchen garden was delightful, with many gardeners willing to share their expertise. The information everywhere was in the main, very good. The surrounding park was looking lovely, but the ground was a little soggy for the shoes I was wearing! The actual house is so interesting, with once again helpful staff. You can even try on some the fashions of ‘the day’ reproductions made on site by the talented seamstresses. We really enjoyed the house. We would recommend Berrrrington Hall.

    Well worth a visit
    It was a very hot day when we visited so the shady areas in the walled gardens with hammocks hanging from the apple trees, deck chairs here and there and garden seats in shaded areas were a lovely plus to our visit. Many people had brought picnics and there are acres of garden to enjoy a picnic on the busiest of days. The Hall offered a cool break from the heat with interesting rooms and costume exhibitions, including a room with costume replicas for both adults and children to try on. Only one of the restaurants was open when we visited, so space was at a premium. The menu is limited but with a good choice of cakes. Our only disappointment was that the downstairs kitchen area was closed on the day.

    Well worth visiting
    Whilst in the area last week, we visited Berrington Hall. Well worth the visit, with plenty of rooms open for the public to view. Also, on the day we visited the basement area / kitchens were open to the public. The Gardens are also well worth looking rounds. Recommended

    Very interesting house and gardens
    A very interesting and important Palladian style house. Lots of interesting displays of clothing with one dress worth in todays money £500k! On the day we were there the basement area was open which gave a fascinating insight into life ‘below stairs’. The formal (walled) gardens were still offering good colour and interest (in early September) and the parkland walks are worth considering - the walk down to the lake and through the woods was very pleasant on a hot day. The courtyard cafe was also nice, with a good range of goodies and friendly staff. All in all a very pleasant way to spend a few hours.

This was one of the most enjoyable National Trust properties we have visited. The Christmas Decorations were beautiful. Staff were really friendly and seemed to enjoy their job.

The dressing up box was a lot of fun and we took some great pictures of our children there.

The only recommendations we would say is that they need a Gift Shop and the café needs more space. It was too busy when we visited, so we didn't buy anything.

Very disappointed with the visit.The stables were under repair and unapproachable and dust from the workmen was blowing everywhere. The upstairs of the main house was being conserved and therefore off limits and the furniture from there was partly moved downstairs where the furniture had been shuffled to the sides so there was no sense of how the residents had lived. The path to the lake was poorly maintained and so muddy it was unusable. Despite this National Trust continue to charge full price for a visit.
If you must go I'd suggest you wait until Spring 2024 when the work might have been completed.

Called in on way past. Would have been helpful to have winter tour times on website as on arrival, we were informed last tour had just started (and no option to join a bit late, it seems). Also was told they really wanted my original membership, and not the copy in my phone wallet; never been informed of that before. Grounds and walled garden lovely, but can't comment on the house. Cafe usual NT prices (expensive to my mind). Would probably have scored more highly if we'd been able to see the house.

The gardens are very lovely esp the walled garden.
The house and displays are interesting.
On the day we visited only the tea room was available which is only accessible by a steep staircase. The queues were very long unfortunately, we tried to visit the tea room a few times but even later in the afternoon long queues.
The disabled toilet was out of order.
There were surprisingly few benches to sit and rest on in the grounds.
This is a lovely setting but if you have people with limited mobility you may want to check re toilet and other cafe opening before going.

A lovely place to visit with a lot to see in the house and outside. The visit was spoilt by the disgusting state of the ladies toilet and washbasin. I had not seen a previous review written in August . The NT had a whole month to do something about it! Looking back on it I wish I had taken some photographs.
