Magical timeless and unspoiled. Staff and volunteers are without exception welcoming friendly and always helpful. We love the house gardens and estate walks. It has a peace that we can't find anywhere else. Thank you Godolphin and National Trust

The history of this estate is interesting, but the building itself (or the part you can visit) is not particularly attractive, inside or out. But the grounds and gardens are nice, if not spectacular.

We left the car park and followed purple arrows not realising this would take us on a walk through fields. The map stated we would walk apart mines but these weren’t obvious so not a particularly interesting walk. Godolphin house looked pretty from the outside...More

Visited here one afternoon, the house was unfortunately closed but wandered around the gardens. National trust tea rooms inside so stopped for a cup of tea. As we asked to sit outside as the cafe was full we were given plastic cups and paper plates...More
