This house was fairly recently acquired by the NT and used to be home to the Terry family of chocolate fame, there was lots of Terry's memorabilia around the house, including wonderful retro chocolate boxes! It's not a large house and doesn't take long to go round, but it's very homely and full of interesting things to look at. The... More

A lovely property with beautiful gardens. Unusually for the Trust visitors are encouraged to sit on the furniture and handle a lot of the exhibits which makes it a very interesting visit. The gardens are really lovely and we spent some time sitting on the terrace - would have had gin and tonic later in the day, as I am... More

Really enjoyed our visit here, the house was very interesting and hearing all about the family and their business was great too. It was raining so did not get to walk through the gardens this time!

Lovely gardens designed by George Dillistone covering some four acres and the house which was the family home of Noel Goddard Terry, owner of the famous chocolate-making firm Terry’s of York. The house designed by architect Walter Brierley in the Arts and Crafts style is well worth a visit.

Took family of five inc three children age 4-9. The free trail quiz was great way of exploring the house and kept children interested and informed. Room stewards were great with our children, pointing out little interesting details and telling us about the Terry family . ..liked the sense of family feeling and history. . Gardens are a series of... More

Goddards House is a National Trust property and the home of the former Terry family (of Chocolate fame). The house and the gardens are an absolute gem. We visited as an older family over Easter and found the house and gardens to be both interesting and yet relaxing. The house has a 1930s feel to it and the house and... More

The gardens were wonderful and a total delight today , small but compact and while not old are just at the stage the gardener here does a really good job . The house itself is not as interesting as many national trust properties but is full of the "Terry's of york" sort of hands on experience.Neither stuffy or pretentious or... More

Visited on a Bank Holiday and it was very busy. No room in the tea room, A beautiful house and garden and we will revisit on a quieter day.
