We are members of HHA and entry to house gardens and watermill was free. Gardens were neglected which is a shame. The fountain was excellent the highest single fountain in the UK. Bear in mind wind direction, some families were picnicking on the lawns and...More

The fountain plays twice on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons in August and well worth visiting. The house looks very inviting although I had no time to visit this trip. The watermill is fully working and was grinding wholemeal flour on our visit. Well worth returning...More

Stanway house and fountain has limited opening so you have to check the website. When it is open the property is only open between 2pm and 5pm. However it is well worth a visit and definitely time it to coincide with the fountain. Despite the...More

This place is only open a couple of afternoons a week over the summer months. So do check opening hours. It is still lived in by the owner so having any access is quite surprising. The main reason to visit is the huge (300foot?) fountain....More

Hi, The owner has a dog that goes around with him so I should think that dogs would be allowed in the gardens - and so you'd see the fountain. As for the House, I'm not sure so would advise you to phone. Hope this helps. M
