We came here using our National Trust membership. Pricing can be found on their website. Car park was £4 or £5 for the day. Not a bad walk but definitely not a day out like Tatton Park

Hi Jamie, we're glad you had a good time on your visit. Were you parked on the National Trust car park? It's just over the road from the property and there's no charge.

As I understand it, TripAdvisor is a place where you can look to see what the relative merits of a place may be – not a platform for venting personal disappointment or a one-sided hagiography. Now I imagine if I was a small child, I...More

I would say at any time of the year, as exhibitions and events are going on al the time. Each season is beautiful, so just go whenever you feel like it and enjoy the magic of every season. I hope this is of help to you.
