Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It was raining when we arrived, so a visit indoors was the obvious start.
    The welcome staff did just that. The unprepossessing entrance gives into one end of a hall, and we were made welcome with the sensation of visiting, say, an elderly relative for the first time. We didn't know each other, yet, but were nevertheless pleased to see each other.
    The audio tour was explained, a little of the background to the Hall and ownership given and we were given free rein to wander around. My query about the table was answered fully and completely, and led to more explanation about carvings, which had a distinctly Gibbons-esque quality from a distance, but were made by a former owner.

    The table, it turned out, was recent, and from a single fallen oak, yielding a one piece top around 6 metres in length. The whole with cunning breadboard ends and pleasantly chunky underframe on turned pillars.

    The rest of the Hall is full of interest, and made the more so by the audio introduction to each room being made by the owners Claire and James, with their comments and reminiscences 'We used to roller skate in this room' lends a very human level of appreciation totally missing from many similar locations. Knowledgable and approachable room stewards who were happy to explain and discuss details.

    The rain stopped, we toured the exceptionally soggy formal gardens, which are really worth another visit when the season has moved on and the plantings are flourishing.

    For all you homeware needs, but predominantly garden. We needed a feature tree for our garden and a large Acer seemed to fit the bill. There was plenty choice at Pennells, from large to small. And we settled on a mid range tree that was far too big to fit in our car. Delivered free of charge by the end of the same day, fantastic service.
    The garden department is huge and incredibly well stocked. From grass to trees, it's all there.
    The homeware and clothing section is large but do be warned... Between September and January, Christmas takes over the store. If that's your thing, you'll love it. If not, bite your lip and enjoy the lovely cafe...

    Looking for places to visit we saw the attractive photo of this garden centre cafe overlooking ponds with ducks and travelled for an hour to get there. We struggled through the impossible door with the wheelchair and looked at the pile of menus. Hardly any were even appropriate ie Mother’s Day has long gone, too late for Breakfast menus as finish at 11.30 other menus missing. Confusing. Not much choice. The Lincolnshire sausages were not like any Lincolnshire sausages I’ve ever eaten and I’ve had 70 yrs in Lincolnshire. There was a large piece of bone,not even gristle, solid bone which at first I feared was my tooth thank heavens it wasn’t. I brought the sausages home for the dog as it put me off. I didn’t mention it to the staff as tbh there didn’t look to be anyone who would have been interested. The view I hoped to see from the window was impossible as the windows were too high. Shame as it could all be nice with a bit of thought and effort.

    I used to live in the area and visited reasonably often It's a nice enough little spot, but a very, very short walk. A little oasis in a park with a play area.
