“Brilliant Classic Car Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

Once again my husband and son in law were so impressed by this Classic Car Day. It is such good value at £7.50 per head and seems to get bigger and better each year. An added bonus is being able to see around Gawsworth Hall which has to be one of the most beautiful houses. If you like classic cars shown in the most beautiful setting with a very modest entry price then make a point of visiting Gawsworth next year. A fantastic day out. Thanks to the whole Richards family.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

Visited Gawsworth Hall almost by accident. Had a pleasant day - very interesting and historical. Visit probably would have been a couple of hours but there was a gift/ craft fair in the grounds that took up the rest of our visit.

“The Proclaimers in a Beautiful Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

Went to see The Proclaimerslast Friday at this venue - what a beautiful place and appreciated being made to feel so welcome at what is the family home of the Richards family - being greeted by Mr Richards on arrival at the gates. We enjoyed a lovely relaxing afternoon having a picnic in the grounds down by the lake & enjoyed listening to The Proclaimers rehearsing ahead of the concert which was a bonus for me ! The house is well worth a visit as there is much interest in there and it is so relaxed - no-one saying 'don't touch' or 'don't walk here' - we sat in their garden on a bench and just enjoyed the environment. An excellant day which was completed by another great Proclaimers performance

“Beautiful House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

We were greeted at the ticket house by Mr Richards himself who was friendly and jovial. I like their home grown way of doing things. So refreshing when some places seem so formal.The rose garden complimented the beautiful house perfectly. The grounds were free to walk around and we could hear the choir practicing "Les Miserables" for the coming evening concert which we were not there for. Not my kind of music I am afraid though I would consider an event more to my taste in the future as the setting is so lovely and intimate. We met a charming resident cat who was very friendly. Mrs Richards greeted us in the main entrance of the house and was equally as friendly. It is so nice to meet the real family of an historic house who live there. The house itself is stunning inside and packed with interesting personal family archive photos and information giving an open book insight into their lives. So many rooms to see which makes the entrance fee about right. The only disappointment for me is the cafe. We paid £6 for 2 teas and small pieces of carrot cake. To be fair, the cake though small was absolutely delicious and very rich but I am afraid we were served just 2 small cups of tea, one not even full. After finishing the tea we noticed everyone else had been given a pot with milk and water which would have made a second cup each. Why we were not given a pot is a mystery as tea was written on the menu as a pot. As the staff were so busy I didn't have the chance to question it. Again, just a small niggle but do make sure they serve you a pot of tea and not just a cup. We will visit again but will probably take our own lunch.

“"The Proclaimers"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

Went to see The Proclaimers last night at this venue .
The weather was kind to us and the band were great !
Galsworthy Hall is a beautiful venue and we enjoyed a lovely picnic in the grounds prior to the event . All the staff were very very friendly and full of good advise ... We'll be looking into other events here without a doubt
