We arrived at this place about an hour before they closed so we had to hurry through. We wanted to grab a snack there too. The house was very nice and well taken care of. Lots of history there to see. Beautiful home.

I always wanted to visit this property and managed this time on my visit to Glasgow. It is tucked away and any weary traveller may give up on a quest to find it. However once found it was lovely to visit. It looks rather tired as though a good cash injection may help. I simply loved the room that had... More

From Cathcart station I took the scenic route along the river to Holmwood House. Staff keen to share, I almost had a personal guide who walked me through every room. Fabulous kitchen garden. Worth a visit, but beware only drinks and cakes/biscuits available to buy.

I loved visiting Holmwood House, even standing outside it gave me the feeling I always get when I visit historic places. Magical. Stepping inside we were greeted with the loveliest welcome from a host of knowledgable people (and a cute wee dog!) who are dotted around incase you want to hear any of the info about the house, even myself...

A wonderful visit with excellent volunteers eager to increase your knowledge of Alexander 'Greek' Thompson's work and designs. It's still very much a work in progress restoration wise but is still quite incredible. The gardens are worth a wander alone

We had been here a few years ago and the house now looks great. Good to see how well cared for it is...an oasis of calm in the city.

I visited Holmwood over thirty years ago when it was still part of a school. We were on an evening class architectural visit and I loved the Alexander "Greek" Thomson details of the house. My recent visit was a bit of a disappointment. If it hadn't been for the detailed directions from the lady in the Greenbank Gardens tearoom, I... More

I took a small group of people with disabilities to this venue and couldn't have been made more welcome. The staff were pleasant and well informed as to the history of the building. Cafe is basic but again lovely staff and the scones were lovely. As said worth the visit

The house is about a good fifteen minute walk from Cathcart train station (around a sixteen minute train journey from Glasgow Central). The exterior design of the house is quite striking. I would say that it doesn't take too long to look around but there are some very interesting features that are worth taking a look at. To make it... More
