We eventually found the avenue, signage not good, and although disappointed with the state of the trees the walk was nice. It got us thinking about how it would have been when the avenue was being used to get to the ‘big house’.

We read about this location and the varied yew trees found along this avenue which is really a long overgrown grassed area off the road passing by. Signage to it is not obvious to see and it can easily be passed by without realising. It...More

Watch out for the entrance, sign just down the road from the drive into the site. Good area of free parking next to the Avenue. This is a splendid avenue of unique topiary yew trees. Depending on the time of year you go some will...More

As other reviews point out this is clearly well 'past it's best' but that is part of the charm. A lovely 1/4 mile walk amongst topiaried yew trees. Free and easy to find and park at.

A very quiet and secluded area which is located in a rural setting. Beautiful for walks alone, as coiples or with dogs. Parking available, and it's free. Can be very popular in the summer.

If you are traveling past (Grantham to Rutland for example) and have a spare 30 minutes then it's worth a look. Definitely take a change of footwear as it's muddy. Car park can accommodate at least 30 cars so bring your imagination!

Best memories of this place as visited during our mini honeymoon. A bit eerie but beautiful at the same time. Quite amazing how they sculpt the trees, can only compare it to being Alice in 'Alice in Wonderland!'

This should be amazing but due to budget cuts the trees are no longer maintained as they ought to be. It is still worth a visit to see what was and what could be.
