Had seen Goddards as NT offices but never noted the gardens open. On a day predicting changeable weather we chose to visit, and what a great place to go. The house, now open with a few rooms to visit, though not terrifically old, had great charm and a wonderfully comfortable atmosphere. Stewards were extremely helpful and interested, and the dining...

A beautiful house set back from the busy Tadcaster Road with the racecourse behind and sight of Terry's clock and factory that was past of York's chocolate history. Lovely furniture and history of the Terry family. Extensive gardens, tea rooms that are worth a visit anytime with outdoor seating for sunnier days.

Having been impressed by the house on a summer visit we decided to return for lunch in December when the house was tastefully decorated for Christmas with log fires blazing. We had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon starting with morning coffee by the fire. Lunch was served in the dining room, delicious and beautifully presented. I enjoyed the tomato soup and... More

I visited here with my parents on one of their pre Christmas weekends. The house was bedecked for Christmas, just as the Terry family did of old - as advised by one of Noel Terry's surviving daughters. A warm welcome, a warm log fire and a warm afternoon tea served on crisp damask cloths with immaculate blue and white china.... More

Goddards is run by the National Trust, but as it is still in its early stages of being open to the public, it remains fairly good value. The house is beautiful (real arts and crafts detail, some interesting history of the Terry's chocolate factory inlcuded in the 'tour' and you can even play table tennis!). The gardens are relaxed, have... More
