The blue bell forest was beautiful peaceful and moving.we found the rest of the gardens structured and did not eat there as too busy.

We visited as the parents were up visiting the area. We found the staff really friendly and knowledgeable. The place is overall quite small, so wouldn't suggest a full day there, however there are fields to walk in with sheep and cows.

Canons Ashby is a building with an interesting history. Unfortunately we visited on a dull rainy day so the interior felt gloomy, although I understand why the trust keeps the rooms shaded. The guides were informative and friendly. My only criticism is that the tearoom...More
