“A visit to the BIG HOUSE”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

There was a craft and antiques fair on so we paid to visit the fair and saw the house for free. Beautiful furniture and paintings etc. You only see part of the house as the Duncombe family still reside in the house.

“a good walk”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

This was a lovely park to walk around, with woods and a river and the house that the Feversham family now live in.
We walked for about 4 miles and really enjoyed it.

“Great walks”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Lovely views and places to roam whatever the weather! Watch the sheep though they're everywhere! A stroll round Helmsley too with a purchase or 2 from the deli is a must!

“Closed”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

All the signs point to the walled garden. We like many others walked up to the house and could go no further. Luckily no money had been spent.
