Visited yesterday as a stop over for coffee and a walk around the gardens. The gardeners here I think do one of the best jobs in the UK for National Trust properties. The range of home grown plants for sale also show this. The display...More

Me and my wife went to Canons Ashby. It was a lovely visit and weather was great too. We visited the garden and also the house. We paid £10 each. Well worth it. There is a lot of history behind this place.

Can you get to the second hand bookshop without paying for admission to the house and gardens, or is it only accessible to paying visitors?

Hi Vicky, we love to welcome dogs in the paddock, the tea room garden and the parkland for walkies. We don't allow dogs in the house or formal gardens in order to protect these sensitive and delicate environments... More

I would like to visit the Canons Ashby tea room on Saturday, but want to know if you have to pay to go into the Nat trust property first? I only want a tea stop! Thanks

Response from M L M | Property representative |
You are most welcome to visit the tea room without having to pay for entry to the house. On Saturday we open at 10.30 and our favourite treat is the heavenly cheese scone and butter. Enjoy your visit.
