Received warm welcome on arrival & got the Easter egg hunt for the kid's who really enjoyed walking around completing the questions sheet while the kid's enjoyed their chocolate eggs, the playground was well equipped & tidy.

First visit to Beningbrough since before lockdown. Usually have a lovely day out there but unfortunately felt really disappointed on this occasion. Had to queue to get through entrance lobby despite having booked an allocated time slot. Then had to walk the full length of the grounds to go to newly built toilet block only to have to queue again whilst blocking paths for visitors trying to pass by. Very difficult to socially distance. Although gardens were still worth visiting and garden staff obviously working hard to restore them to their former glory the biggest disappointment was the house itself. Only top floor open to visitors which has had all furniture and paintings removed and is now a gallery for exhibitions. This gave the house a rather empty and forlorn atmosphere despite the staff trying hard to make positive comments about it enhancing the rooms architecture! Understand that the original paintings in the house were on loan from National Portrait Gallery and have now been returned. Having recently visited several other NT properties I feel that Beningbrough was disappointing in the experience it provided for visitors to the house. Lots of almost empty rooms and no information whatsoever about the history of the property. Hopefully things will improve in due course.

I visited here for the first time in August 2020. I had to pre-book and despite knowing that the house would be closed, I did expect the grounds and gardens to have been more extensive for the entry fee charged. A restaurant area was open and overall there certainly seems potential to develop the estate even further for visitors over time. Toilets were open thankfully, however no gift shop. Due to limited access I only spend about an hour there looking around the garden. Hopefully when the house is open there will be more to see.

This was one of those visits I was not expecting. I have been a National Trust member for ages and was expecting to see the house and gardens but the art exhibition was a lovely surprise and made the whole visit fascinating.
