Newby Hall was a treasured memory ; I always used to refer to it as my favourite english country house & garden to visit.
Sadly like all things modern ised or improved for our better enjoyment HA!!!
style now rules over substance, and yes money or the taking of it, seems to rule here, rather than the giving of value for it.
The atmosphere was dreadful, the staff were so miserable, and this was conveyed to the 'paying public'...
i did wonder if i was being too nostalgic of past visits, but i see even younger people with families also came away disatisfied..
maybe it s time to admit Newby HATES the public intrusion and possibly they could look to other ways to make the hall pay it's own way...
I would not truly advise anyone to go there expecting a pleasant visit any more, even though the roses in early summer were outstanding, the 'price' to pay to see them was too high, I came away very saddened rather than elated as i have always done in previous visits..
