Lazy day out in the country

very good day out for family or couple. Nice walk and plenty to do. Nice relaxing environment and food areas are enough for snacks.

Called in on friday night after a busy week at work for a drink and bite to eat. Getting a drink was no problem. The staff were great. However the only place to eat was the pizza shop. The service was terrible. We queued for almost an hour before having our order taken. They were totally understaffed. The lady preparing... More

My young son and I walked from the walled garden to the end of the avenue and no less that 7 vehicles passed us-4 minibuses, 2 pick up trucks and a car. (The walk took us about 10 mins). My son wears specialist footwear and the grass along the avenue was too wet to walk on which was why we... More

A subbing place. Great for a short or longer walk. The first time I went I couldn't find much for kids but when I returned and walked further and followed signage we found lots of great things for adults and kids! Definitely be returning!

What can I say the staff made my day very friendly and very helpful, from the minute we got out of car. The entry staff were very helpful my father has had two hip replacements so we were offered a... More

Visited Gibside today to have a little walk and listen to the live music. Decided against taking a picnic as the weather was unpredictable. Gibside is lovely - they've done a lot of work there recently making it well worth a visit. However the band were supposed to play between 1 & 4 pm. In fact they played for a... More

I have been here several times with my family and there is always so much to do. Especially during the holidays, they have lots on for the children. You can take a picnic or there is a little cafe to buy food and a lovely farm shop.

Hi, me and two of my friends recently went to gibside for a walk. As we arrived we parked up and started walking up towards the track. We were stopped by a blonde woman from the national trust. She very rudely asked us what we were doing, then continued being very rude towards us being there.she said to us in... More

We are quite frequent visitors to Gibside. We usually do the 3.5mile Skyline walk which gives great views of the Derwent Valley. There are interesting information boards giving information on the Column of Liberty, the stables, the Chapel, and one of our favourite spots; the Banqueting House. Two cafes, but perhaps a bit pricey. The beetroot cake is always goes... More

Gibside is a National Trust Property with a chapel, a walled garden, a pleasant grassed avenue and the ruin of Gibside Hall. The Chapel is a unique building very well preserved - delightful atmosphere and an interesting history. The walled garden was interesting and the stroll down the avenue was very pleasant. It was sad to see the hall in... More
