Visited one weekend and it was a lovely walk around the ground and in the bird sanctuary area which included everything from flamingos, owls, rhea parrots etc. We were surprised to see that the house wasn't open, due to it being winter months, but there was a free guided tour at 2 PM so we decided to get something to...

First trip there in a long time just before Xmas. There is so much to see inside & out and it keeps being changed so you can go again and again. Can't wait for the spring to come so we go and see the gardens are they start to come back into life.

Note to self: This is a place to visit in warmer weather. We chose a gloomy, cold late afternoon not long before closing. Lotherton is best enjoyed in warmer weather. It has a couple of pleasant walks a kids playground, still popular in the cold, and extensive space to park up and enjoy a picnic, a kick about or whatever... More

A very nice way to spend 2 ..3 hours. The woodland walks based on the 12 days of Christmas and fairy grotto were very good. The house whilst only the first floor was open was worth visiting. We beat the queues in the cafe with an early stop for drinks. When we left there was a very long queue. Next... More

The Hall is very interesting and there is a lot to seeThere are good information boards and the history of the Hall and family is fascinating. I should add the admission price of £5.50 pp is extremely reasonable and we felt the Hall represents excellent value for money. The House is very beautiful and we took time to call in... More

Visited after Christmas to burn off a few calories. Good place, nice play park for the kids, an interesting bird garden with plenty of exotics to hold the kids attention. Visited the cafe, very expensive for what you get and the quality was poor, I'd suggest a bring your own picnic instead. Unfortunately the main house was closed on our... More

We visited this local attraction as it was well priced in comparison to other places to visit. The Christmas experience was very good especially as it was dark. We had a nice long walk around the grounds and through the house. The 12 days of Christmas walk was fun and the interactive features made it more enjoyable. The fairy dell... More

Went with family to see the house and gardens, as well as the special Christmas walk. We arrived, paid at the gate, and that included parking, the house and gardens, and the woodland walk, and the Fairy Dell. Plenty of room to park, and didn't seem far to walk, but if the weatherman says wet and or windy, then wrap... More

I booked this back in October after seeing it advertised on social media. I think i payed £25 for 2 adults and a child into tje grounds and for a child to go to the Elf village to visit santa. I must say, this is by far the best santa visit we had done. We were greated by Snowy the... More
