About
LOSELEY PARK ( GARDENS ONLY) IS OPEN FROM MONDAY'S TO THURSDAYS- 10-5PM UNTIL THE END OF SEPTEMBER 2020 . Built in the reign of Elizabeth I, Loseley Park stands in ancient Surrey Parkland close to the North Downs yet within reach of London. Still the home of the More-Molyneux family, it is remarkably unchanged since 1562 when Sir William More laid the first stones, and remains, as he intended, a place of calm, grace and subtle beauty. From the house itself, where the intricate panelling in the Great Hall was once in Henry VIII’s Nonsuch Palace; to the Tithe Barn with its ancient oak beams; to the elegant and restful walled garden, Loseley Park is sought after for civil weddings, corporate events, and as a location for films such as Sense and Sensibility. But it’s also a place to visit, to enjoy the grounds, the garden and house, and relax in one of England’s friendliest historic homes. ‘Invidiae claudor, pateo sed semper amico’ Shut to envy, but always open to a friend.

We’ve visited the house and gardens a few times over the years but it’s been a while due to Covid etc. in the car park there’s a large layout map of the grounds but it’s somewhat out of date as the tea room and shop have closed (there is a hut cafe inside the gardens) and there were no plant sales when we visited. We enjoyed looking at all the plants, well tended formal gardens, vegetable plots and water features. Last time we visited there was a cafe near the garden entrance but that’s now closed and a wooden hut in the White Garden serves hot drinks, light snacks and of course Loseley ice cream! It’s currently (May) and a bit of a challenge if you want to use the toilets near the entrance due to the large bee hive inside the framework as you enter!

We visited on 25th April, the first day of their new season. The gardens are lovely, very well maintained with beautiful flowers. The gardeners are friendly and knowledgeable.
The tea hut has moved to the White Garden, so now on hard standing and there is some cover if there is a shower. Glad to still have an option to buy food/drink outdoors. Good cup of tea and a choice of cakes, very pleasant staff serving. Limited choice of cold drinks if you don’t like the Fentimans range. The other choices are a child’s packet juice or water. The garden is not large, but is very relaxing and quiet. No gift shop on site any more.

Very nice neat gardens. House not open
Pleasant cafe with good coffee. A bit early for vegetables and summer flowers. Would recommend.

Waste of time going, £5.50 entry fee per person wasn’t worth spending. Apart from a few Christmas decorations it didn’t seem Christmassy at all. Over priced merchandise and lots of the same stalls.

Very sadly we were let down badly on my daughters wedding day. Whilst the venue and grounds were beautiful - hence at least two stars, the service, food and ‘after service’ was and has been appalling.
To cut a long story short - the wedding was on 29th May, so we were probably the first wedding event held there for some time after the pandemic. I won’t go into massive detail but the canapés in the garden were poor and (in our view) overpriced, they were late and some guests didn’t eat or get offered anything.
At the ‘wedding breakfast’ we had organised a cream tea - we had tea served with tea bags in the cup and the cakes etc were of poor quality and stale.
We had to continually keep asking where things were as the food was late - it seemed the catering staff were unprepared and untrained.
It didn’t ruin the day but it was incredibly poor value for money and disappointing.
More and most disappointing however has been that despite the owners recognising agreeing with some of our points and offering £400 compensation - this has not happened.
Despite another e-mail from me to ask what is happening - still no response.
Poor behaviour.
I would be very careful when selecting this venue.

A beautiful place to visit, this time we didn’t go into the house as the weather was so good we wanted to spend longer the gardens. You can take note of the names on the plants for future reference at home or just enjoy the view, and the glorious scent in some parts of the garden. And of course the ice cream is a real treat. A thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours.

The gardens were extensive and very well maintained. Perhaps we were lucky as the lawns all looked as thought they had been recently mowed.

Virtually all of the flowers and vegetables were labelled encouraging discussion with one's fellow visitor.

Covid compliance procedures were well designed and the al fresco coffee / snack from the refreshment facility was very much enjoyed.

Will visit again when next in the area.

The Gardens were beautiful but there is no way you need 4h here (as the website says).
The entrance was around £10 each and I will admit, the walled gardens were stunning, but 45 mins-1h is all you will need here.

I had high hopes for our visit to Loseley even though I was aware the house was not open. Entrance was £8.50 each. We’d seen the whole garden in about 40 minutes. Beautifully maintained but the roses were only in bud. Website states no picnics but that there was a cafeteria with refreshments cakes etc. The hut serving coffee and a small selection of cake was all there was. We were told the cafe is a short drive away. To cap it all there are only 2 unisex porta loos.
