A gorgeous house in the countryside, well off the beaten track. A large car park is available and you enter via the tea room/gift shop. We looked at the displays in the stables (fascinating), had a walk in the gardens (which are nice but we had expected a bit more in the way of flowers) before lunch (which was delicious)... More

For a reasonable price you can spend a happy day exploring the massive grounds and the gorgeous stately home which is steeped in history. There are several walking trails which take you through the length and breadth of the grounds. When you're famished from your walks you can grab a sandwich in the quaint cafe. My only quibble is that... More

What an improvement... Hadn't been to visit for many years and was pleasantly surprised at the difference. We started in the tea room having coffees and then lunch... freshly made salads and staff couldn't do enough to help. We walked our lunch off round the lake e and through the woods and then went round the house. There are many... More

Just got back from a visit to Burton Constable hall in the East Riding of Yorkshire. What a wonderful experience. If you like stately homes then this one should not be missed. I went there as a child and my long standing memory was that of a run down old place. Now however, with the help of English Heritage and... More

I decided to have a walk around Burton Constable as I haven't been for a while and I am so glad I did they have updated the stable block which also housed the stable boys room plus a ww1 information room which I found particularly interesting . I had my dog and took him for a walk which takes you... More

We were so impressed with Burton Constable Hall on our recent first visit. There are walks in lovely grounds, an excellent cafe and the house and stables well-presented and extremely interesting. Allow a couple of hours for looking at the house interior and stables as there is so much to see - so many well-furnished rooms open, displaying some beautifully... More

We visited burton constable mid week and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The lady on the reception was friendly (as were all staff we encountered, even the workmen and maintenance staff greeted us with a warm hello). We visited the house first and the room guides let you look at your own pace and didn't bombard you with information. When we... More

We arrived early and had a walk around the gardens which were beautiful. We stopped in the tea room and had some lunch which was great. We then had a wander around the house which was packed with interesting pictures, curiosities and history. We ended the day in the sunshine having a drink as the birds swooped over the lawn.... More
