Been visiting all my life and one of my favourite places. The gardens are beautiful and varied, pathways leading to little surprises in the different sections. I have always loved the Japanese garden. The house isn't always open, but worth going in when it is,...More

A lovely place to visit. The Abbey itself is so interesting with really good imput from the staff. Arthur the peacock was on fine form. Certainly the best Nottinghamshire attraction I have been to in a very long time.

Visited Newstead Abbey with friends and our babies. The main grounds are not pram friendly due to the amount of steps dotted about. We went for a drink and snack in the cafe. The two young staff members were miserable and they mumbled instead of...More
