We visit alot of National Trust sites, the family membership card makes excellent value for money. In the main we visit Cragside, Gibside and Wallington Hall and do so many times a year, why? Interesting houses and large expanses of grounds for kids to burn off some energy and as with all NT places, you don't generally bump into idiots.... More

I enjoyed this visit better then the last one. We managed to get in to look at the house this time and they have opened more of the gardens. be warned it doesn't take you very long to get round the gardens etc and you wouldn't want to spend more then half a day there.

I love Seaton Delaval Hall. Nice place to walk about and they regularly have things on for kids. The staff are always very friendly too.

Years ago my father passed the hall by and as he looked up at the top windows he saw a greyish coloured lady...a ghost he said. She was walking past the top windows from the inside and she was looking out across the fields. My father looked and looked again and she was still there. How did he know she... More

A nice enough plae to while away a couple of hours spoilt slightly by the staff bearing down on you to impart their knowledge at every opportunity. They would probably be less overbearing on a busy day but it seemed like there was someone ready to appear around every corner. Maybe a better use of NT funds would be to... More

I've managed to pass this gorgeous Manor at least once a month for the last few years and had never stepped through it's doors, but it had always captured my attention and imagination. Finally took the time last weekend to give it a visit and I was very pleased with the state of the manor and the displays that they... More

While largely a ruin in the ownership of the National Trust this building is still worth visiting to see the fabric of the structure that is so often covered by plaster and wallpaper in well maintained stately houses. It was encouraging to note that some essential maintenance/restoration is underway which will hopefully keep the building from deteriorating further in future.... More

Visited with my husband for a saturday afternoon, and despite the drizzle it was really nice. The staff in the tea rooms are really friendly and helpful, the sandiwch and scones we had were lovely! The West wing is great, the paintings fantastic. The staff in the rooms are highly knowledgable and willing to answer any questions. Walked through the... More
