I took my daughters and Mam to do the Easter Hunt so we only bought a Garden ticket as we had previously visited the house on a separate occasion. No one explained the challenge of the hunt to us, we were just given a ‘map’ with pictures of eggs and clues to find. Once we found the first egg we realised the clues were related to mathematical questions which were too tricky for our youngster and apparently too tricky for us adults as we were 6 points wrong at the end. Luckily we still received an Easter prize.

The hunt took us just over an hour to walk around the whole woods with a 3 year old and a pushchair. Then we spent the next few hours in the gigantic play area. It was fantastic! My daughter loved the variety of swings and slides compared to our standard local park. We also took a 20 minute boat ride around the lake to see some birds nesting and look at the house from a different perspective.

Such a beautiful place to visit with a lot to take in both inside and out. Great day out for the kids when there are specific activities aimed at them. Castle Howard is an hours drive away from us which doesn’t seem much but with two littluns can sometimes seen arduous. So we choose our visit times to cater for them - otherwise the interest is just not there.

The ticket prices are reasonable for how much you can see and do - the boat ride did have an additional charge but was worth paying for. Would highly recommend a visit here particularly at Christmas.

As keen visitors to stately homes this has been on our agenda fir a while....the gardens were extensive albeit a little colourless, maybe the time if the year. The house is a delight. A good example if it’s kind but not quite Hardwick Hall.

My teen daughter & I visited during the Easter holidays. We got a special deal which included entry to the gardens & house as well as an afternoon tea.

The grounds are stunning, the house is so beautiful & the guides were so knowledgeable & helpful.

I would highly recommend

Arrived here just as the house was opening which was great because we were able to wander around without too much trouble. It's a beautiful house which is also a home. There was so much to see. The gardens are gorgeous and offer plenty of walks.

My friends and I went to Castle Howard believing we could see the inside, but the day we visited it was closed. We still bought a ticket to go see the grounds, however, which was a sufficient second.

It was so grand and of such a magnitude, and very truly beautiful with its lakes, parks green lawns and fountains, and other buildings. This is a great attraction especially if you get to go inside, but also for a visit of the outside. You really get to see how the other half lived back in the day, and take in how much money it would take to live in and keep a place like this.

Very much fun! Would definitely recommend, and there should be no doubt especially if you get to see the inside.
