Scotney castle is a beautiful place to visit,as you park up you have the walled garden behind you where you can wander round and buy fruit and vegetables before proceeding into the visitor centre which also doubles up as the shop. The new castle has...More

Being fairly new to the National Trust, I think I came across one of my favourite places so far! Easy parking is always a boost and the welcome from the staff was really warm. I didn't go to the main house but I wanted to...More

I’ve wanted to visit Scotney for a couple of years now, but circumstances have always got in the way (cancelled coach trip, snow on the day, house closed, flu) so I woke up in the morning and just decided to go. I was with my...More

We took our 2 young grandson here. What a lively experience for the 2&3 years old. They counted the cat's in the house as we looked round the house that kept them entertained. Lots of grounds to walk round. As with all National trust places...More

This National Trust estate is NOT to be missed. It brings together historical events dating back 630 years, to the days of the 100 year war between Britain and France. The grounds are beautiful and nature is at its best.

What a special well kept place by the National Trust. The Castle full of history and beautiful paintings, the gardens are spacious and picturesque. We brought kids with us and had a picnic and we all loved it.

Picturesque castle ruins are a fair walk downhill from the entrance and main house. Lovely walks around gardens. Main house has timed tickets but we didn't have to wait at all. Good second hand bookshop in garden. Non members pay to park.

Visited without too much knowledge and was excited to explore. Facilities could be better along with food choice inside the coffee shop. So would recommend bring own picnic. Not impressed to pay extra for parking but that's the National Trust practise these days. Apart that...More

For awhile, I'd thought that Washington D.C's free museums (which would take a fortnight to engage) was the singular behemoth and clearly most profound source of vast cultural, artistic and informational largesse to be found anywhere in the world. Now I feel otherwise. There's nothing...More
