It was interesting to see a building that had developed though the centuries and been improved to a budget as the owners were not aristocracy just basic farmers in the beginning, it becomes obvious as you tour the building and see how very little has...More

A great thing about Canons Ashby is the surprise it springs upon you. After you've driven a seemingly fair time along an enticing tree lined B road to get here, almost blink and you've missed an obscenely large church and house with some modest grounds....More

Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review- we're glad you enjoy the surprising aspects of Canons Ashby. We're not entirely sure what you mean about parking in farmer's fields, as we do not charge for parking and our neighbours do not...More

Well preserved property, kept as it was some 200/300 years ago. There is not a massive collection of expensive crockery in the dining room or polished brass pans in the kitchen. What they do have is utensils, furniture and arte facts that are displayed in...More

Very family friendly. We did not see inside the house this time as it was close to closing and felt it a little overpriced, art £11.50 per adult. Would like to experience it though. The gardens were breathtaking, even this time of year. Lots to...More

We visited Canon Ashby on a sunny autumn day. It’s not one of the big National Trust places. There is a 16th century House, gardens, a medieval priory chapel, a tea room and a shop. The formal garden was impressive. From there you will enjoy...More

We stopped by for a quick visit and enjoyed the house and gardens. Enjoy the history of the house and take a stroll through at least the upper gardens.

A beautiful National Trust property. This is the home for the Dryden family. Very interesting place to visit and well worth going. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

This is the second time I've visited Canons Ashby. Having read adverts about seeing their autumn colour and looking to see what was growing in their veg patch I was very disappointed to see...well not much actually. Paid £5 for garden entry and the veg...More

Hi Vicky, we love to welcome dogs in the paddock, the tea room garden and the parkland for walkies. We don't allow dogs in the house or formal gardens in order to protect these sensitive and delicate environments... More

You are most welcome to visit the tea room without having to pay for entry to the house. On Saturday we open at 10.30 and our favourite treat is the heavenly cheese scone and butter. Enjoy your visit.
