Just had a great day at the national student with my grandchildren ages 3 and 2. Staff are brilliant, friendly and make you feel so welcome. The stud has developed over the years and now has a really nice playground and fairy village. Best of all is the access to the beautiful horse s and foals. Guided tours are at no extra cost and really interesting. February and March are a great time to go as it is foaling season and a really unique experience to see them. I had very young kids with me, the weather was stinking but we had the best of days. Highly recommended for all ages.
