‪The tour was absolutely fantastic. Our tour guides, Mark and Lee, we're extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. They kept our attention the whole way through and brought a real sense of originality to the tour. The stories they told really brought the place to life and helped capture the history of the people that lived and visited there. This really was unlike any tour I have been on and really helped me appreciate the significance and the history of Calke Abbey. I couldn't recommend this tour enough and I think this twist on a house tour is absolutely the future for getting people engaged with the history of these properties.‬

‪Shame the house was closed‬
زوجان • نوفمبر 2021
‪The house was closed so couldn’t get to see inside. Such a shame as I’m sure this would have been really interesting. Large grounds but little garden to speak off. Walled vegetable garden was nice. Pleasant walk.‬

‪Grounds delightful, restaurant very poor‬
نوفمبر 2021
‪Being November, the House was closed for the season so we contented ourselves with walks around the gardens. These we enjoyed and can fully recommend the autumnal beauty of Calke. The signs however tend to disappear once you leave the house area and make finding some features a bit of a hit-and-miss affair.
After our walk we decided to visit the restaurant and ordered coffee and a tuna mayo baguette and a cheddar cheese and onion marmalade baguette.
Oh Dear...!
The baguettes were very cold and had obviously just been been taken out of cold storage. A baguette should be golden brown and crusty. Neither were as they had not been re-heated in the oven. The cheese was sparse, thin and rubbery, the onion marmalade had been applied thickly and overpowered any other taste.
The tuna baguette was no better. Too much mayonnaise had been used, making the bread wet. Both were inedible so were left on the plate!
National Trust Catering, you must do much better than this! Our experience has reduced your overall rating to a mere two stars.‬

‪Beautiful‬
بمفردك • نوفمبر 2021
‪A wonderful national trust site, plenty of car parking, beautiful open space with lots of different walks, woodland, lakes and plenty of wildlife.
There is a playpark on site for children, cafe, shop toilets and book shop. The cafe was busy on my visit so didn't go in. The toilets were clean and fully stocked with toilet roll. The lady in the shop was very helpful and kind.
I had lovely walk and we be returning very soon to do a different route.‬

‪A magical visit to a distinctly seedy ‘un’stately home.”‬
نوفمبر 2021
‪We had the most wonderful guided tour around the house by Rob and Sue. We could have spent all day looking around the house listening to the telling stories about the house and family. they are clearly passionate about the volenteer work they do.
we will definitely be returning in the new year to see and hear more.
A big WELL DONE to Rob and Sue.‬

‪Magical visit to a distinctly seedy ‘un’stately home.‬
زوجان • أكتوبر 2021
‪Loved this un’stately home which has been deliberately keep in various states of ill repair in order to display the decline of many of Englands stately houses. The House, Church and grounds is absolutely worth a visit and looks gorgeous at the moment in its Autumn colours. We enjoyed a walk through the house following a brief history of the house from a very knowledgeable gentleman into rooms in various states of dilapidation filled with wall mounted horned animal heads and case upon case of taxidermy samples of every type of bird and animal. There are sitting rooms and studies lined with books, all readable, kitchens and banqueting rooms, and bedrooms and just rooms full of both junk and antiques carefully kept as the previous owners had left them rather than cleared out and renovated as most modern Trust properties are. Sections of the house are just long yellow walled uncarpeted corridors offering rooms full of more junk and as you progress through eventually find yourself in the cellar and the entrance to a long secret underground passage back to the stables. The kids will love it. From the house you can visit the Church where many of the family are buried and wander the gardens with some in an equal state of careful disrepair and renovation and others carefully tended with outbuildings full of antique implements and yes, junk and another creepy tunnel the kids will love letting out onto the fence surrounding the deer enclosure where, the highlight of my trip, I was able to get so close to a magnificent stag I could almost touch its antlers. There is also a cafe and a restaurant run by friendly helpful staff which though has a limited menu has enough to keep you fed and watered. I would absolutely recommend a visit and would definitely return again but next time with the grandkids.‬

‪Great place. Avoid cafe.‬
زوجان • أكتوبر 2021
‪Have visited here numerous times and it always has something new to see.

Loved the Spooky halloween tunnel this time.

The auricular theatre was beautifully dressed with pumpkins and gourds - a work of art! Dahlias stunning too.

Queue in cafe stupidly slow as everyone was being held up by just one person preparing hot drinks. With less than 10 people in the queue it should not take 15mins to be served. No wonder many people were walking away losing the NT much needed revenue. Our scones were very dry and crumbly, just like the clotted cream (not sure if it had been frozen). Won’t be eating here again.

Will definitely visit again, but will make sure we bring hot drinks and cake.‬

‪Unique NT property..giving a special perspective on times gone by‬
زوجان • أكتوبر 2021
‪So much to see and explore at this very unusual National Trust property. The house and its contents have been frozen in time..and give a unique view of the history of the people who lived there.

Whilst I don’t like ‘stuffed’ animals, I appreciated that the collection came from a time that values them. The peeling wallpaper and plaster gave an atmosphere to the building that provided a unique view of how the family lived.

The extensive grounds, however, have been well maintained and give a clear view of how the estate was self sufficient, with its own meat, vegetables, fruit and even brewery onsite. We were lucky to join a garden tour , and spent about 1.5 hours with a very knowledgeable guide who pointed out so many features that we would not have spotted or understood on our own. The management of the estate was so well planned, and the underground tunnels facilitated movement of staff / supplies easily.

The modern restaurant provided an tasty lunch and we found our day just disappeared…we could have spent more time exploring.

A very special place to visit..‬

‪So much to see!‬
أكتوبر 2021
‪Wow! Loved this place. So much to see. A National Trust property. Unlike most NT or EH houses you visit, this one has not been restored to its former glory. It has been preserved, repaired and cleaned but not restored. It was great to see things accumulated, stashed away, collected, neglected, left behind, and not polish perfect. Highly recommended! Go and see what previous occupants have left behind. Everywhere you turn there is something to see and just when you think you must be about done, there is more! A long tunnel and brewery, the stableyard and then go up the hill to the walled gardens. They go on and on, too! The funny thing is, I only found out about Calke Abbey (not an abbey, but an abbey had formerly stood on the site) because I was looking at a nature site which mentioned an ancient oak there (the Old Man of Calke, at least 1000 years old). I wanted to see the tree but we were exhausted and had to travel further, so maybe next time.‬
