I went to Wimpole with my daughter to take our dog for a walk but on arrival was charged £36 for the two of us so we didn’t stay. Crazy price just to walk a dog!

Love this farm. Cafe at the back is also a lot less crowded than the one on the main walk up. Personally I'd lose the geese and put more emphasis on the beehives but that's just me.
Interesting house, particularly like the arches in the library, very ornate. Gardens are great. Particularly enjoyed the daffodil walk and the walk up to the folly. All well worth a visit.
