Recently joined the HHA, so this was free for us to visit. Easy parking, not far to walk, though disabled parking is even closer. Warmly welcomed at reception with full explanations of what was on offer. We did the gardens first, though probably a bit in between seasons, with spring bulbs over and too soon for the summer displays. Gardens... More

Went to visit the gardens through the National Garden Scheme (all monies raised went to charity). First time to Kelmarsh and house wasn't open (which we knew). Disabled parking was right in the front of the house so you couldn't park any closer if you tried! Gardens were brilliant, lots of different styles and plants for depending on what you... More

Great afternoon out with the family at a well organised Country Show. Lots to see and plenty of trade stands, including a wide variety of food stalls.

We recently held our daughters wedding reception at Kelmarsh Hall. I appreciate I may be a little biased in my review, however I could not find fault with the venue. The Hall and grounds make for a fantastic setting and the staff could not have been more helpful, particularly Charlotte and Emma - all in all a wonderful day.

Very interesting tour of the house. Interior magnificent. Gardens lovely. Took a packed lunch, but cafe prices seemed reasonable for the type of place. Easy access by bus.

More dogs than people. Very little about "Game". Too many greasy eateries. Usual clothes outlets. There are better fairs now to attend.

First first visit here with the family to visit the gardens, we did not visit the house. The long driveway up to the hall is currently (7 Apr) full of snakes head fritillaries, beautiful drifts of them. The daffodils are largely over but must have looked lovely a couple of weeks earlier. Very nice gardens and woodland walks, lots of... More

After a nice lunch in the tearoom, we first went on a guided tour of the hall. This lasted for 90 minutes, far longer than we had anticipated. Perhaps overly long, the tour was interesting and covered many nicely furnished rooms Then we escaped to the gardens and wandered around in the sun, passing the massed daffodils around the lake,...
