This was the biggest rip off ever, first time at the Hall and it is a lovely building today we decided to go to the Christmas fayre and on the website it said it was free, when we got there we found out it was not free but cost us nearly £14 entry, there was very little there and nothing... More

This place suddenly appears right on the road with little warning... Its unusual colour, the fact that you are not sure whether it's a ruin or inhabited, the deceptive size and hidden gardens all add to the mystery of the property. I was offered a child's Hallowee'n quiz sheet at the entrance- in fun!- but I seriously wondered why the... More

Having visited this when it first opened to the public, I was pleased to visit again to see how the house and garden have developed. It has all been carefully done.

most of the main building was ravaged by fire,however parts of the hall have been renovated and looking at the building from the exterior you get a good idea of the splendour of the hall. the servants quarters and stables still retain many of the original fittings,and take a close look at some of the paintings they have one fascinating...

Ahh well we just love it here. It is so peaceful through the week. The gardens are just stunning and the hall itself is beautiful. I would love to go and look around properly without a toddler that doesn't stay still for 5 minutes, but we live it here especially in the summer where you can sit on the lawn... More

We visited on a quiet Thursday in October, the sun was shining and we stayed around 3 hours. The main building still astounds on the outside though is but a shell inside due to the fire.The remaining furnished wing has some interesting stories to tell which the guides do very well. The formal gardens are well kept and the stables... More

Second time going to the chilli festival and it is getting better with age (just like most chilli dishes) the only downside was the huge queue for the over used toilets (not the best with young kids) but apart from that it was a great day for the whole family!

We were warned that Seaton Deleval Hall was a bit of a ruin and so it is. Having said that, there’s actually a lot more to see and do than you might expect in a building that has been ravaged by fire. The National Trust is nearer the mark when it describes the place as a ‘grand old building’. Yes,... More
