Not dog friendly.

Despite what they say on the website this is not a dog friendly location. As a solo visitor I couldn’t enter the cafe with my dog or the toilets. Misadvertised as dog friendly which meant I spent £4.50 to enter to only be able to walk round outside with my dog (who had to be on the lead at all times).

Very disappointing and won’t be visiting again, shame as it looked a fantastic location, but not if you have a dog with you and no one to stand outside with them.

Had a great day walking around the park and we actually came for the day due to booking Go Ape which was brilliant. My wife and 2 boys absolutely loved the experience and highly recommended - staff were great too and very friendly.

The only downside to the day was a couple of the staff of Normanby Hall who were quite rude including the lady who runs the cafe - who seemed to not have any customer service skills and was very abrupt with us for not knowing what was included in the meal deal- sorry love was our first time visiting the cafe! and the lady in the gift shop who basically told my son to leave as he was looking at what he wanted to purchase and clearly was taking too long for her - we left so a lost sale for you there.

Would have been a fantastic day out but unfortunately tarnished by the poor experience with a couple of staff members of the park.

Thank you for the review. We are really pleased you enjoyed Go Ape and your autumn walk in the park. We would like to apologise for your experience in the Cafe and Gift Shop as this doesn't reflect our usual high standards. We will be addressing this with the team. We hope to welcome you again soon

Just down the road from where we stayed, delightful country house, extensive grounds and well worth a visit especially if you have little people who need space to let off steam - lovely, don’t miss it and great value

Decided to visit as we have the yearly pass and the weather was nice, arrived at the gate, shouted our pass number and then told the man how many people we had in the car, then went and parked up. Our kids love to explore the grounds, so off we went, its huge, plenty of room for everyone, wasn't that busy, people kept apart from each other as well.

The kids loved the lake where the ducks where and then onto the play park, again not that busy but they enjoyed it, then had an ice cream, again reasonably priced,

The cafe was nice, prices where reasonable, in comparison to other tourist attractions in the area, for example the national railway museum I would go as far to say they where cheap.

All in all a wonderful place to spend a couple of hours with the kids.

Cannot wait to come again

We went on a Sunday, easy to find and park. Lovely grounds to have a walk around. Plenty of space too. Cafe was open serving outside due to covid and all safe procedures in place. We spent a couple of hours walking here, so if you want a relaxed walk. It’s worth it.

The cafe is operating a CoVid service. Sandwiches were very poor and the service was VERY slow. My recommendation would be to take a picnic!

We would like to apologise for your experience at the Stableyard Cafe, which sounds like it falls below our usual high standards. A manager will be looking into this, to see how we can improve our offer. I hope this didn't detract from the rest of your visit to this beautiful spot. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Visited the food and craft fair over the bank holiday weekend. The fair was located on the large grassed area in front of the hall.
Considering the situation we're all in, there was a great selection of craft and food stalls. We spent our pennies at Rose Cottage Pantry, and the Sausage Man and Pie Lady, (or is that the other way round?), both stalls offering excellent food at very reasonable prices. The stage entertainment was great too, adding to a lovely atmosphere. There were loads of families picnicking on the grass in family groups well distanced from each other, and all looked to be having a good time. It shows just what can be done to put on an event in these difficult times. Well done Normanby Hall!

Love this place ! Great for familys, couples or even on your own. Annual pass is great value and we go at least once a month, all year through - beautiful all through the seasons. Christmas is fab, awesome Santa & Mrs Claus and watching the deer being fed is part of our Christmas traditions now.
The park is adapting to C-19, each time something new has been added/changed - particularly loved that they had move some of the seating out of the courtyard into the main area so you can sit under the trees (hope they stay there too). Choice of food is getting better, with more options than last time we visited.
The land train is only £1 and the little steam train rides are a must if you are luckily enough to find them running.
The only down point is in the park, some of the items are damaged and have been for some time now. As we bring young children, this is always a "must go to" before we leave and it is only a couple of pieces so doesn't spoil anything for them.
Fab place !!!

Kids (7&5) loved Go Ape, the instructors were amazing and the whole experience was out of this world. Had a lovely walk back and visited the rural life museum which was lovely. Everything was well planned out, just a pity the walled garden and new splash park were closed (covid) but we will definitely be going back 😊

Social distancing seemed to be adhered to. A lovely walk with our dogs and all dogs were on leads. Cafes and toilets were open as well as Normanby Hall itself.
