3rd visit to this property and each time to witness further restoration. This time the West Wing which survived the fire was open with an interesting collection of family paintings. Look for the feet on several of them! There's also a well-maintained garden.

This National Trust work-in-progress was a real eye-opener, and one which I would seriously recommend. Top praise has to go to well-informed guides, who passed on their knowledge with great enthusiasm. The place is excellent for kids too - with plenty for them to do, and it was nice to see them able to enjoy the grounds with an element... More

We visited when the property was first opened around 2010 and were very impressed with the progress. The hall itself is a fantastic Vanburgh design from 1720s. Same architect as Blenheim and Castle Howard, so wonderful design, on a smaller scale. Because of the fire damage from 1820s which, a tragedy, you can see the construction, brickwork, etc giving insights... More

I used to pass this derelict ruin with a grand facade when I lived in Wallsend and hoped somebody would take it on. The National Trust have risen to the challenge. The building is still in need of much restoration but it is amazing. The volunteer guide was very informative and made the day. This is an attraction that continues... More

Really enjoyed the free tour of the west wing, the guide was very knowledgeable and told some funny stories about the Delaval family making it really easy to imagine some of their mischievous goings on.

First impressions can put you off, but the National Trust are doing a lot of work there. Listening to visitors who were on repeat visits, they saw improvements each time. The volunteers we spoke to were passionate about the site and very informative . The tour of the West Wing which has been refurbished was worth it.

Visited a typical English sunny summer day in August, didn't both going into the Hall gardens are worth a visit in their own right. Grounds are dotted with picnic tables, near the car park there is a playground for young children formed from fallen logs. The meadow to the south of the hall was ideal for kite flying and there...
