Wrest Park is a lovely property to visit. It is located only an hours drive from Cambridge and a great day out for the children, dogs and art lovers!
If you are an English Heritage member, it is free to visit. There are podcasts to download before you go. It also has a tearoom.
There are a lot of trails which children and dogs can explore. Dogs can be taken to Wrest Park but must be on a lead and cannot go into the house. There is also a playground should the children need to burn off any energy.
Lovely day out, pack a lunch and bring the camera!
