The staff are really friendly and knowledgeable adding to the tour of the building. The gardens looked good even in the winter and look for to seeing them later in the year. The kids loved playing in the log climbing area and running about in the open spaces outside.

The best local historical house near the coast Whitley Bay and Blyth. It is going to be on Robson Green's Tales of Northumberland which is being broadcast at the moment , episode 7. Well worth a visit.

A lovely place to visit especially if you are a National Trust Member. The gardens are beautiful throughout the year - all guides are very knowledgeable and local and truly want to share their knowledge with you. Well worth a visit, especially if you live locally.

Really good NT property but under-marketed. We were given lots of information by Val Fletcher, a very informative volunteer, and this property is one to visit - very interesting.

Lot of work taking place at the moment on the "track" entry road to parking. Limited opening at the moment. £6 entry fee seems rather high for what you get.

Started the morning with a trip to Seaton Sluice on a very cold but sunny winter day which is worth a trip in its own right. Visited Seaton Delavel hall around lunchtime, not too busy. The children enjoyed the crafts that were on that day. The hall and grounds were very interesting and beautiful. Very peaceful and the hall quite... More

I think the National Trust may have bitten off more than they can chew with this one. After many years of seeing the old place derelict we were delighted to hear that the Trust had taken it on. What we didn't realise until we visited is that the inside is completely gutted... back to the stone work on most of... More

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.
