“Dangerous parking on Main Road”

National Trust Museum of Childhood
Ranked #3 of 27 things to do in Ashbourne
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 August 2017

Dangerous parking on the Main Road is the fault of thoughtless lazy people and not the National Trust but it`s worrying. There is a free car park a few minutes walk away along a pleasant countryside path and there were spaces available. The gardens were lovely but very crowded as it`s school holidays. We decided to cut short our visit and come again when it`s quieter although it`s very encouraging to see so many children enjoying their visit.

As National Trust members this is a great day out. Amazing Stately home and Children's Museum kept the children very happy. We were tempted to visit the local for lunch (Vernon Arms) but so many bad reviews here we decided against and eat at the cafe. Best decision, food staff and service were excellent and at a very reasonable cost.

Fab day out for all ages - under 5s are free so we paid £25 for 2 adults and 2over 5s on a family ticket which included gift aid. Lots to see and do, lawn games outside too,

Free parking and a short walk into the grounds. We only did the museum and not he hall too as that was quite expensive.

The Victorian school was a favourite with my group and the boys loved the chimney talk and climbing round.

We played games in the yard and was taken back to my own childhood with lots of great memories

Would definitely recommend

Other reviews for poor are accurate based on our visit. It is very unorganised and you can miss things because there is not a route around the property. The 1967 idea is not great. Toy museum is fine and it seems the money has gone on that rather than the property itself
