What a wonderful place! Hidden in the little village this is a stunning hall and the gardens are beautiful. I visited with my mum and we joined a guided tour of the hall as well with one of the Hall's volunteers who was very knowledgeable and friendly. The cafe was small but but served our needs and all of the... More

Great place to visit for the day. Suitable for all ages as easy to get around the hall and the grounds, especially in the Summer where it is so colourful. It's also worth a visit to The Church Of Our Lady next door.

We hadn't actually planed to see this place but we are glad we did. The place was rescued from being demolished which is a good thing if you have the chance to see it. It was fortunate enough following a devastating fire to have a new roof fitted. The inside is full of very enthusiastic people who are doing their... More

Seaton Delaval Hall is a wonderful place to visit. The house itself, and associated grounds are a must when visiting the North East coast. The house is steeped in history, and has something for everyone's tastes. Just beware that the house closes ( most of it) in Winter, so plan your visit accordingly. The area also boasts beautiful coastline and... More

This is an unusual property in that it's three parts are in different states of repair. In short: - The central hall with basement is now re-roofed and stabilised but will remain semi-ruinous. - One wing originally for stabling was converted into domestic rooms for the agent etc and is in an early stage of restoration. It includes interesting graffiti... More

Seaton Delaval Hall is a lovely building that is currently under restoration. However, it is fascinating to see the improvements. The Hall is set in lovely grounds with the fabulous Northumberland coast just yards away. The coffee shop is rather basic but I am told that it too, will receive the same attention as the rest of the house. Well... More

It was fascinating to see how some of this building is being restored. The sculpture talk was very interesting.Other rooms had some lovely treasures. The guides were informative especially on family history. The gardens were a delight. Go!
