We are members of the NT, so try to visit as many properties and parks as possible. Yes, the house itself is incredible, but it falls short of many other NT properties in terms of how it engages children. Just one 'treasure hunt' thing to find things in each room and some fairly well worn dressing up. We sheltered there... More

Our first stop was the cafe as we all needed a cuppa to refresh us after our busy morning elsewhere in the city. (See other reviews). Situated in the basement, the staff were friendly, with a good selection on offer even if the rooms were gloomy. The house itself was very interesting with a story in every room - providing... More

Did not personally enter the building , which seemed to be very popular. Did enjoy the tranquility of the gardens, in a busy part of the City.

It was a lovely house and staff knowledgeable. I was expecting something really old inside but the interior was pretty modern compared with the houses history. The decorations were not to my taste. The garden is lovely and free to get in.Unlike most other properties my son had no children's trail which makes it more enjoyable for the younger members.... More

Whilst we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the treasurers house their coffee shop was a big disappointment. Only went in for tea and scones but they took a while to arrive and although there seemed to be a lot of staff on there didn't seem to be much action ... Took around 10 minutes to pay the bill even though... More

The tours are a must, great guide Claire was very interesting and informative. Really enjoyed the ghost story. House and gardens very unusual and quirky. All the volunteers are bursting with facts and are very friendly.

Lovely house owned by National Trust and as with all NT properties it is well presented and has a well kept (small) garden. Good views of the Minster from the garden. The interior has about half a dozen rooms open, which are well furnished with interesting items. Nice cafe on site (which can be visited without having to pay the... More

This was a mish mash of designs, quite bizarre no real period. The garden was the best part of the house.

After visiting Stonegate we made a bee line for the Treasurers House. A true gem, often overlooked. Great History and a very well kept. We made it in time for the free Haunted History tour of the Basement. A great tale of Roman Soldiers walking through the floor across the room with their feet on the original Roman Road a... More
