“Lovely place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

Visited while passing through the area on holiday, it was not the nicest of days but house and gardens lovely, children enjoyed adventure playground even though it was cold and wet! Cafe was disappointing though as one of the treats of such a visit is usually the refreshments but not here! We were too late for lunch menu which meant that there was nothing for the children - a brownie was on offer but they didn't have any. I was really pleased to see several options for us gluten free types and opted for the scone, big mistake - do not ever attempt to eat one of these it was vile! I would have complained but neither girl serving (or not) seemed vaguely interested in their customers - a really bad N.T cafe. It would not stop me visiting the house again of course but I would bring sarnies and a flask!!

“Always great...but the cafe girls are terrible”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

Great place in so many ways, so why allow the sulky and curt teenage cafe staff to undermine the experience? Employ better staff, the food and drink prices should allow for a more professional team. Shame.

“Great park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

We are NT members and live fairly locally, so we go here quite a lot. The grounds are fantastic for dog walking and walking with children etc. The children's play area is one if the best in the area and is always very busy! We have been into the house and gardens many times and you can go at your own pace, see what you want to see etc. We occasionally go to the cafe near the lake/play area, but it is usually very busy with HUGE queues and it is not cheap! It is only used as a treat occasionally! For a quick coffee or ice cream go to the small kiosk just off the main car park, this is usually quicker! Overall we love Lyme Park, it is worth a visit.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

Fantastic place to visit. The house was huge with lots of rooms accessable. The staff were all warm, welcoming and very knowledgable. Eveyone gets the option to dress up in the Edwardian clothes to walk around the house in which is a great idea - really sets the scene and throws your imagination back to how it would have been in the day. The grounds were huge and well maintained. Lovely gardens. Lots of different walks to choose from. We'll need a second visit to see what we missed. The kids play area was absolutley fantastic - lots to keep the kids entertained. Fully recommend.

“Food at Lyme Park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

The food at Lyme Park lets down the total experience. I feel that they could cater better for the 8 to 13 years by having simple egg sandwiches and cheese one.s also. Apart from this the children enjoyed the grounds. And play area.
