Gibside is owned by National Trust so there is an entry fee. It doesn't really matter if you just ant to go for a walk or take in the landscaped gardens, there's lots to do at Gibside. There are numerous activities throughout the year so make sure to check out their website to see what's on. I wouldn't say this... More

Situated close to where I live, this is one of our preferred places to visit on weekend mornings. There is a small cafe, and the walks are fabulous. Lots of educational information in the stables and for runners, there are often runs. Great place to visit for all ages

Great day out. Lots of walks with good paths, shop toilets, cafes. Set in beautiful scenic county side. Lovely ruins, walled garden and monuments throughout the grounds with a river, you can easily clock up 5/6 miles if that's what you like - great places to sit and have a picnic or u can eat there. U can fill 4... More

We took the children here on a cold but bright January afternoon. There was snow on the higher ground. We had just got our membership through. It's 4 years since we've been and a lot of changes have been made. New car parks, reception etc. It's still a lovely place and the pizza on Saturday nights look good. The new... More

We only live 15 minute walk from here and never tire of visiting no matter what time of year. There are walks right through and around the area. Plenty parking available and a small cafe. National Trust property so entrance is free for members but not sure what the charge is for non-members. Don't just wait for a fine day,... More

We love Gibside. You can have a short stroll through the walled garden or do a 5 mile hilly yomp to clear the cobwebs. There is a cafe and an adventure play area for the kids. The chapel is nice and Gibside house is a ruin but it is an outdoor venue. The cafe does good local ales, nice coffee... More

Large grounds with woodland and riverside walks. You can go into the Chapel, Stables and Orangery, but not the Hall or the Banqueting Hall. I visit for the wildlife and for the "Low Ropes Challenge".

We have visited a couple of times and enjoy the walks and visiting the gardens. We know they have various events which family and friends have gone to and have been well worth going to. We have had tea and snacks there but as usual these places charge a little more than local cafes
