On arrival we had a great welcome by four traditional drum players. The food which was presented to our party has a nice variety. The combination with salmon I had as a main course was almost perfect.

This was such a great surprise. Acres of woodland walks, walled garden, tea rooms, fantastic trees and landscape. And, best of all, a hidden waterfall. Such a pity to see the ruins of the house. Lots of time needed but such a lovely place.

This was so unexpectedly beautiful a place. The tea rooms, while a little basic in terms of the offering, were stunning. The garden walks were glorious – the perfect place for a relaxed wander. The children’s playground was a bonus.

You will so enjoy an extraordinary amble around these gardens. There's a walled garden with pear and apple trees. Several places to rest and sit down along your experience to stop and stare. The monkey puzzle walk is brilliant. The orangery or glass cafe gazebo...More

The house is a ruin having been burned to the ground in the 1920.s. The Gardens are very atmospheric and have a lovely olde worlde feel. There is a lovely playground for the children and plenty of open spaces to exercise your dog.

Our first trip to Woodstock and we loved it. The place needs more attention but it is a great amenity to have and you could easy spend a few hours there strolling through the woods. A nice place for children too with a good playground.

Our party of four middle aged tourists were very impressed by the many different and wonderfully majestic old trees. However we were very disappointed by the poor maintenance of the flowers in the "walled garden". They were all in a parlous state of neglect. It's...More

Hello, so sorry for the delay in responding. The gardens are free apart from a parking charge which is 4.00 euro for as long as you wish to stay. The house is a ruin and so is not accessible, but the gardens are on a... More
