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...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...More
