Came here as part of our English Heritage membership as it was highly featured in their guide book. This is a real treat. The grounds are superb and there are plenty of lovely walks through garden areas, play areas, picnic grounds etc. The house gives you mixed feelings as it is totally missing it's roof, most of the floors and...

The court is in ruins but there is something magical about it. If you use your imagination you can rebuild it in your mind and imagine it as it once once. If you need any help in bringing it back to life there are photographs in the adjoining church (open to the public) that document the court through its highs... More

Freezing cold and windy day but the magnificence of Witley Court blew me away (pardon the pun!). Walk through the gardens across the lake and up to the house which is hidden from view. It's palatial! Stunning building although just the structure remains, you are carried back to Victorian overindulgence. You can hear the music from the splendid parties and... More

Went out for the afternoon to enjoy a relatively mild February day. Impressed that you can take dogs around the grounds. Lovely pathways to follow and everything is well signposted. Snowdrops were coming out in the wilderness gardens, a sign that spring is on the way. The house would have been truly magnificent and the newly restored fountain will be... More

Sadly the famous fountains were undergoing repairs, however this did not mar the visit to this amazing ruin and gardens. The church was beautiful and the guides incredibly knowledgeable and happy to share their love of this extraordinary place. The tea gardens were super, and despite the slightly drizzly day we sat outside and watched the bees and birds flit... More

Plenty of information available to make it more than just a burnt out big house! It was interesting to be able to see what lies underneath the normally high polished interior of a large house. It's quite a walk from the car park, but a pleasant one. The large fountain was undergoing restoration when we visited, so will have to... More

I remember going here 40 years ago when it was an open space littered with ruins of an opulent bygone era...absolutely amazing gardens and house that sadly fell into ruin. They are now being slowly revived, well worth a visit if in the area.

Gorgeous place to sit and eat a picnic or just chill out. Loads of space for children to run around and explore

Visited late December, Quite a walk fom the car park to the ruins, but lovely. The ruins are impressive as are the gardens. The fountain was having essential work done but there was a platform to view it from. The cafe was closed and the weather cold so we didn't stay that long. Overall I enjoyed the visit but thought...
