Very interesting place to visit although the house is just ruins

A great place to take children for the adventure walk but the gardens are a nice walk for any age group. Good for an hour or so of in the vicinity,or to sit at the coffee shop

We are National Trust members and visit here regularly. It is my favourite place in the North East. It is steeped in history and often there are volunteers doing tours round the grounds who will give you a run down on Gibside's chequered past! The actual house unfortunately is not open to look around - in fact it's on the... More

GIBSIDE is a lovely place to visit. Sadly the house is just ruins but the gardens are pleasant and it's great for a good walk. Some of the area can be quite steep. Good coffee shop and easy parking, great for national trust visitors.

My partner and myself took advantage of our National trust membership and seeing it was only half an hour away from our place. Great facilities, loved the ruins, although it would be nice to explore it up close Highly recommend this place if you like long walks, loves exploring different landmarks. you won't regret it.

We have visited gibside on numerous occasions since becoming national trusts members. The family adventure walk is a favourite or ours, includes all the play areas indoor and out and the low rope challenge. The skyline walk is also a nice walk, we have only done this once but be aware you walk through muddy fields full of cows and... More

National Trust property so NT members get in free, otherwise it's a reasonable ticket price. If you get the National Trust app before going you can find out what events are on. The main house is a ruin & currently unsafe so you can't go in it or look round but signs detailed they have builders in the process of... More

There is an interesting but complicated history to this large National Trust property which makes it worth going on a free guided tour so you know what you are looking at. It is a lovely place to spend a few hours but be prepared for a bit a walking if you want to see it all. Plenty of parking available... More

Came here today, was very warm and so was nice to walk around the grounds to enjoy the sunshine. It's a pretty big place and your could definitely spend a day here. Lots to see and the hall is well worth the walk!! Looses a point for the cafe, so expensive!! Bring a picnic instead!!

We had a happy day here doing the family highlights walk which links three different play areas and takes in some of the historical features of the property. NT members free so good value for us (as members), would be early if school holidays as someone I spoke said it quickly gets busy. We were there for opening but didn't... More
