Parking good but not well signposted so look out for the opening in the hedge to the east of the gates. The trees in the Avenue would have benefited from a haircut as they looked shaggy and a bit unloved but with a little imagination...More

If you are traveling past (Grantham to Rutland for example) and have a spare 30 minutes then it's worth a look. Definitely take a change of footwear as it's muddy. Car park can accommodate at least 30 cars so bring your imagination!

Best memories of this place as visited during our mini honeymoon. A bit eerie but beautiful at the same time. Quite amazing how they sculpt the trees, can only compare it to being Alice in 'Alice in Wonderland!'

Trees, nice shapes, good place for a short wander perhaps pre lunch at The Olive Branch in Clipsham. Parking limited but free.

With wife, pooches and children in tow we often drop into the yew tree avenue to work up an appetite before the delicious olive branch

Dog Poo everywhere so beware with children, the visitors of Yew Tree certainly don't believe in Poo Bags. Sweet walk but very short and not a lot to do other than run through a field with ornate Yew Trees....

I know that we all tend to have a fond memory of lovely places that perhaps make unrealistic demands upon further visits but, sadly, it is very true about Clapham. It simply is nowhere near as engaging, exciting and inspiring as it used to be....More
