We went here with my wife, married children and granddaughter and had a great visit. My married children and granddaughter didn't go inside. There is a very nice playground, a farm, and many walks for them. In the house we found that the audio tour was excellent. It gave us (Canadians) a glimpse of what life was like for the... More

This is a place I have been coming to pretty much all my life, and the same for my husband too. Apparently as kiddies we both ventured in the grounds and explored. I liked to feed the ducks and go around the gardens with my Grandad, hubby liked to explore with his brother and mum, and cycle on his chopper.... More

They have an orangery at the top of the rose garden which has some outstanding plants in it. There is also a large... More

It was a shame that the house for closed for redevelopment but the farm was open with its machinery and animals including chickens and turkeys. The cafe and gift shops are open too.

We took our friends to visit Temple Newsam, we parked the car and made our way to the mobility entrance. We knocked and after a while a lady came and asked if she could help. We said we had come to look around the house, she then asked if we had an appointment, no, she said it was closed. This... More

Aside from the stately home the grounds are great for the kids to run around with a very good play area and lots of grassy areas for football etc. Picnics are very popular on sunny days. The farm is worth a look around and the cafe very good for lunch/snacks or just a quick cuppa.
