The park is huge and really lovely for walk. Very interesting house with nice collections and with friendly staff. They do park runs on Sunday mornings in this stunning park. There is a 300 years old walnut tree near by the lake also interesting. Car park should be cheaper or free in my opinion.

We booked Lydiard House for their tour and afternoon tea. The tour was extremely interesting and our guide Jackie very informative. The previous owners were mostly reprobates who married rich women but you need to go yourself to find out. The afternoon tea was excellent - plenty of everything.

Acre`s of parkland with a lake and magnificent gardens, plenty of parking and a designated area for children, and even a bookable barbeque area to enjoy birthday celebrations. Absolutely brilliant.
