Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Waddesdon Manor is a country house in the village of Waddesdon, in Buckinghamshire, England. Owned by the National Trust but managed by the Rothschild Foundation.
Sign posting for Waddesdon Manor is provided by the Rothschild Foundation and royal blue and silver signage. It is quite easy to miss as you are driving along but persevere and turn around. Once you have found the correct entrance it is a short drive to the car park and reception centre. From there you can purchase an all-day ticket for the shuttle bus and I recommend you do that. The manor house is built on top of a hill and is quite a drive.
In 1874, Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild bought the Waddesdon agricultural estate from the Duke of Marlborough with money inherited from his father Anselm. Rothschild was familiar with the estate from fox hunting in the locality. At the time of purchase, the estate had no house, park or garden. The site of the future Manor House was a bare hill. Known as Lodge Hill, it had been stripped of its timber by the impoverished Duke of Marlborough prior to the sale. Over the following three years, the summit of the hill was levelled; eventually, on 18 August 1877, the foundation stone was laid. The Grade I listed house was built in a mostly Neo-Renaissance style, copying individual features of several French châteaux. It is very impressive and like a fairy tale castle.
Being managed by the Rothschild Foundation quality is key; food is better; service is better; gardens kept to a higher standard; fountains working AND no rooms closed off. You get your money’s worth here. It was so opulent with regard to jewels, gold and silver decorations on some of the exhibits, the like of which you probably have never seen. Even Queen Victoria wanted to see what was on show here!
The rear of the manor is as impressive as the front but the parterre is so neat with manicured box and euonymus hedges but most of all is the perfectly trained ivy crisscross on the tower.
In the gardens you will also find the Aviary - a huge gilded bird cage containing many rare birds that are part of a breeding program to increase their numbers in their natural habitat.

we visited bleinham palace the day before and to me this house out beats it from the friendly staff at ticket office, on the shuttle bus, to staff inside everyone was happy willing to talk the house wa amazing it was as though the people had just gone out and we entered plenty of history i really enjoyed it i do recommend paying for the shuttle bus though if your not so good on your legs or you have little kiddies it was expensive

We love coming to Waddesdon Manor and visiting the lovely house and gardens. Yesterday, 10 May was very quiet, but we had a great time.

We would particularly like to thank all the volunteers in the house who helped us get around, my husband has sticks and couldn’t get up the stairs but we had help to get the lift. We were able to see every part of the house and all the lovely treasures that are there. Unfortunately we were too early for the summer displays of birds which starts on 22nd May so we will have to return for that .

An enjoyable visit to the house on a terribly wet day. The volunteers were excellent, so knowledgeable. The hardest part was the walk to the Stables cafe, it is signposted as being steep, but it was also quite slippery. The food and drinks at Waddesdon seemed a little over priced.

We are NT members and luckily live fairly close so we come here often. The grounds here always look fantastic- the staff are always helpful and polite and the food is amazing wherever you eat . Coffee and cakes are particularly good!! . I cannot fault waddesdon manor on anything!!
We finally got to see the wedding cake yesterday which is not covered by your NT membership but you do get a discount ( but please do not be discouraged by this !) well all I can say is it is AMAZING some parts are not available on it yet but you will not notice!! . Robert was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and helpful in every way.. we were a small group so managed to get some fantastic photos..
Thank you waddesdon for another fantastic day out … ps Rothschild wine is also very palatable!!
See you soon!!

We had a really good day here. The grounds are extensive, and maintained well, with some lovely wild areas and beautiful spring flowers. We ate in the restaurant, which was very nice. The house is really lovely and interesting. In general, the staff and guides were so lovely and helpful and really happy to share their knowledge and take time to chat to you about the history and answer any questions. Don't miss the elephant family and the aviary!

This is a stunning house with a lot of rooms containing interesting artefacts. The staff on duty are happy to explain the exhibits and tell interesting stories about the history. My grandchildren enjoyed the play areas and the Easter activities. The jacket potatoes in the Stables Cafe were a cut above with lovely fillings like sausages and picallili, or trout amongst others. The car park is large and there is a bus from there to the house if you don't want to do the 20 minute walk.

I only have two small criticisms. First, the Stables Cafe closed at 3-30pm, just as we wanted tea and cake, and two hours before the grounds closed. While there was a takeaway still open, the queue there built up as it was now the only refreshment outlet open in that part of the grounds. Secondly, whilst the online booking worked smoothly, if you wanted to cancel something there did not seem to be this option on the website. I had to send an e mail when I wanted to cancel a booking I had made for the Manor Restaurant, and when I did so it resulted in them cancelling my entry to the house and grounds too. I then had to rebook this. At least, being a NT member, I didn't have to worry about getting a refund. Surely it must be possible to have a cancellation option on the website? Or at least take note of what it actually says in an e mail and only cancel the part that the customer asks to be cancelled.

The manor was sold out when we got there and it was the main reason we went. Disappointing. As we live over 2 hours away we won’t be returning.

There was a wine tasting session which we booked on arrival. It was very disorganised. The guy running it was all over the place explaining the same bit over and over again to a few people at a time rather than setting the group up so everyone tasted the same wine at the same time as he went over the details, before moving into the next one. As such I learned nothing about the reds as he was repeating info on the white wines to one person at a time. It was chaos. Nothing like a legit wine tasting. The wines themselves were fine, mediocre at best. There were a few basic crackers on hand which wasn’t very helpful - the plates were often empty as there were so many people crammed into a small main space. The cellars are very small but very nice as a space (when not crammed).

We didn’t get to see much of the grounds themselves. What we did see was pleasant - thankfully the weather held. The Aviary was nice but the birds couldn’t fly as the aviaries were so small. Like cages. This was distressing to watch.

The coffee place outside near the shop was excruciatingly slow - we tried to queue twice and left both times as it was so slow. There wasn’t anywhere else nearby to get a quick, healthy snack and coffee, which was all we wanted - so we left early.

Make of this what you will. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Very dog friendly. A lovely walk up from the car park to the manor, although be warned the last bit is quite steep.
Always lots going on for kids with a little bit to borrow lawn games.

Beautiful park but the flat white at the Stables cafe was far too milky. Not enough coffee and far too much milk. Cappuccino was also far too milky. Very disappointing.
