I always visit Boughton's gardens in August, and today must have been my 6th or 7th visit. The gardens today were noticeably more unkempt than in recent years, I assume they have got rid of some of the gardening staff. Orpheus is currently closed to the public for maintenance and you can no longer cross the lake by pontoon. The huge fountain in the étang wasn’t on either. There really isn’t much to Boughton and these three things being inoperative really took the shine of my visit.

It seems to me that opening parts of the house to the general public must fit into the "necessary evil" category for the Duke and his family. I get that COVID has affected everything, but not sure that it is a good enough excuse for a very short tour of a very few rooms in the house. Whilst the guides were generally very pleasant and well meaning, they didn't seem to know an awful lot about the artwork and historical significance of many of the items on display. No self-guided tour facilities, no explanatory boards in the rooms, dimly lit, "don't touch anything as it's all alarmed!". Grounds were lovely, but again, not a lot of information provided.

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your visit to Boughton. I should point out that the Staterooms Tour includes 9 splendid rooms and each of them has several incredible treasures ranging from Van Dyck paintings to Boulle furniture, glorious 16th century tapestries and one of the finest armouries in the country. As Boughton is a home not a museum we do not have interactive display boards or similar and we have removed room sheets due to COVID. The lighting level is to protect the pieces on display especially the renowned 16th and 17th century fabrics of the furniture and tapestries.

A return visit to one of Northamptonshire's hidden gems.
As always the gardens and parkland were magnificent in the glorious May sunshine.
I look forward to a tour of the house once Covid restrictions allow.

I welcomed the opportunity go out and about again as restrictions are easing but after 18 months of full shielding it was so reassuring to see so many thoughtful safety measures in place but it felt supportive rather than invasive. We received an amazing welcome from the lovely young man in the courtyard who explained protocol but also the gardens, snacks, drinks available set the tone which was consistent throughout the visit. The gardens are well worth a visit for the variety of horticulture, what grabbed my imagination was the incorporation of meadow in a variety of settings, it inspired me in clearly a much, much smaller domestic plot. The walks were varied, my friend was no gardener but he loved the gardens. The afternoon was complete with delicious, local icecreams and a good cup of tea.

We had booked our visit via NGS website. We wandered through the main arch from the courtyard into the gardens. We wandered around the rose garden which still had some roses in flower. Then up to the lily pond and the walled gardens. Some stunning orange and red streaked dahlias, several different grasses, and salvias in flower. We saw some examples of bonsai and a stumpery. Then onto the landscaped parks, with beautiful vistas, a upturned pyramid made in a large grass mound, and a similar one sunken in the ground. On top of this a large lake, rill and avenues of trees in full autumn colours. Truly stunning.

Visited the house with friends yesterday. The gardens, grounds and various features were excellent, this enjoyed further with a window of sunny, hot weather all with COVID measures.

We visited today and it was lovely weather. We parked up (on proper gravel parking so no worrying about your vehicle sinking into the muddy grass) and received a warm welcome from the receptionist who checked us in. We got ice creams for the children. The only bin we saw was outside the icecream store. Do take a plastic bag for your rubbish otherwise you end up carrying around sticky Icecream tubs around the estate unless you. We walked towards the triangular mound created over 200 years ago and Orpheus created last year. The aren’t any benches around the lakes area.

We later walked to the rose garden and were underwhelmed probably because it’s not real rose season and the windy wet weather doesn’t treat roses well. The walled garden was lovely. The children enjoyed sitting on the benches as their legs were tired from all the walking.

The house are gardens are well worth £14 for a family of two adults and two children even though we didn’t get to go inside the house itself. I paid £14 for myself last year when I visited Rockingham Castle in comparison this is very cheap.

I definitely recommend if you are in the area or visiting or staying near by. It could be improved for younger children if they had a playground.

Easy to book on line , and given a warm welcome on arrival.
The gardens and grounds are splendid, and it was a pleasure to picnic there.
We drove from Suffolk, and met family from Cheshire.....a good half way spot to meet, and we shall do it again!
