Nice park. The weather was a bit overcast but we still enjoyed. Would come back in the summer with the dog. Plenty of parking too.

Lydiard is a firm favourite for us as it’s got a nice walk way for prams/bicycles. Lovely green area for running and picnics. Great for all ages! Ice cream hut is pricey but worth it!

Hi, I went today and it’s free to enter the gardens (plus parking) and £6.50 each adult for the house and walled garden. Free if you have HHA membership.
