Attraction Information

Enjoy the natural beauty of the tranquil lake, rolling lawns and woodlands before heading for some fun in the playground! With colourful, state-of-the-art play and climbing equipment suitable for children of all ages, there's lots of fun to be had climbing, swinging and sliding.

The Georgian ornamental fruit and flower Walled Gardens have also been faithfully restored with stunning displays of flowers, fruit trees and topiary so that's better than ever and well worth a stop on the way round!

Although there are no clear strict rules mentioned it doesn't seem advisable to take ball games and whatnot from the park to the grounds of the house, the vast park being much better suited to running about and there are no posh plants to crush!

You can also choose to tour round the State Rooms of Lydiard House itself, widely celebrated in historical circles for its highly ornate plasterwork, luxuriant original furnishings and haunting family portraits dating back to Elizabethan times!

And if you're up for extending your park day then right next door St Mary's Church holds interesting things to discover too: including the unique Polyptych and Golden Cavalier statues!

You can also find special events here at certain times of year, including Open Air Theatre performances, Bird of Prey flight demonstrations and the Auto and Retro Festival!

Places to refresh yourselves here are easy to locate: choose from the family friendly Forest Cafe or the Coach House Tea Room venues, or there are BBQs available to hire in the summer and lots of picnic spots too! Spoilt for choice in all quarters!
