Family friendly day out with the National Art Pass scheme. Visited with my husband and my 5 month old baby. I used our body carrier rather than our pram / pushchair, but you would be fine using your pram as there’s a place you can leave it under cover while going around the house. The house is great, very interesting, but not all of it open. I would say the best part of the whole place though is the zoo, brilliant, it’s been pretty much fully redone since I last visited over 5 years ago, it’s absolutely brilliant. Great kids play areas too, plenty of parking and some nice small family friendly walks.

Love visiting here- probably why we are members. Lots of space to run around, the wildlife section is great and a lot of care and attention goes into looking after all the birds/animals. Great woods to wander around in and love seeing the deer herd

So worth the long trip from Birmingham. I definitely need to comeback as I ran out of time this trip. Still need to see the orchard and the deer too. £9 per person and the parking was included, which I thought was brilliant. I saw some reviews complaining about the ice cream, but it was good and the wafer cones were good quality too, so I thought it was fine. I do wish the gift shop had more things there, I feel like it lacked a lot of variety.

Stunning afternoon out. Beautiful setting for some wonderful shots of the sunset and garden. Really enjoyed walking around zoo and seeing all the wonderful selection of birds. Great service and food in the cafe

Lovely Lotherton. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Attended here today, we were fortunate enough that today coincided with a 1940’s weekend on the grounds of the estate. However I’ll just review the Hall, gardens and Animal sanctuary. The house though it may look smaller on the outside, compared to other local treasure houses like Temple Newsham/Harewood house. There’s lots to see inside and all the rooms & floors are open to the public. The gardens are good. Lots of trails and paths you can take. There’s also a children's outdoor playground, which is quite large. The paths lead to the animal & bird sanctuary, this was pleasant surprise as I wasn't expecting it to be so large and we spent an hour going round this part. There are outdoor ice creams van/stall and the large stables which is now a cafe. The ticket price of only £8 plus booking fee was definitely worth it. We spent about 2/3 hours here with 2 children 9-14 years old. Who both had a nice day. The site is very close to the M1 motorway & A1 so is easily accessible by car, entrance to the site was swift as we booked online and showed the staff the QR on entrance. Overall worth a visit. Nice & houses gardens , the animal alone is worth a trip.
