The Firework competitions were totally amazing. Carpark horrendous over hour to get out- needs improvements.
This ruined what was a good night as had small children and did not get home until 1am
Ive been to other events at Eastnor where parking has two entrances...I cant understand why with such a large volume of traffic its single file out??

Great wedding venue. Setting simply stunning. Only downside organisers or wedding planners were like little hitlers.

Food was great and the serving and bar staff super friendly.

I was visiting the area with my brother and his wife, who despite living only a few miles away had never been to Eastnor Castle. The entrance fee of £12 was reasonable as there was so much to see. All the rooms are richly decorated and helpful guides can answer all your questions. They even let my brother bring his dog into the house. The castle is still occupied by the family who live in a separate wing. There were lovely views of the lake and in the grounds there was an arboretum and a climbing tower for children and go karts. A lovely day out.

I live about 30 mins from Eastnor castle but until last week had never visited.
We're a family of 5 plus a 4 legged friend. We were really pleased we could take Ollie dog with us and it really made the day special.
The castle is lovely with loads of interesting rooms to explore. The grounds are well kept and we had great fun getting completely lost in the maze. We took a picnic so didnt try the food but we did have ice creams that were lush.
We will definitely be back.

There are some interesting rooms in this castle. I particularly liked the Gothic Drawing Room. The guides are very knowledgeable but I would have liked to have experienced a proper guided tour. You can watch a film and see rooms described in detail by the owner but it is difficult to maintain concentration with other visitors coming and going.

I wasn't overwhelmed by the lakeside walk although it was a gloomy day. There is plenty for children to do but there are no formal gardens to look at.

The cafe was fine (good cakes) but the shop offering was rather poor.
