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

Visited for the first time with family (3 adults and 3 kids aged 5, 6 & 9). The grounds are very impressive and there is a special play paddock set aside just for the kids to play in as we'll as a separate outdoor park area as well. There are beautiful landscaped gardens complete with ponds and large fountain, as... More

Beautiful gardens, with lovely places to stroll enjoying the lovely views. We spent about 3 hours visiting here. The guides were easy to find and very knowledgeable. I loved the contrast between the 'ruin' which was burnt out internally and not restored, and the wings which had been beautifully maintained. The shop was packed with lovely stuff, and the information... More

Not as OTT as some stately homes but all the more impressive that the structure of the core of the building is visible. The history of the owning family and their rise to pre-eminence and fortune and decline (through reckless and extravagant debauchery not unlike some 'celebrity' lifestyles of today) is well reflected in the fading grandeur of the place....

We've been visiting the hall since it was first acquired by NT. It's been lovely to see how much work has been put in and how far things have come. A visit here isn't all about the hall it's about the outside spaces too which are great (if the weather's good!) We had a good couple of hours here and... More

The Normanl chappel was open when we visited. The guides are very helpful and the history of the family is fascinating. The house and stables are very intersting and well maintained. The fire damaged part of the hall has been renovated and you can walk up to the various levels to get a feel of just how big this place... More

The buildings are very impressive from the outside. The main hall is a shell, having been in a fire 200 years ago and restored to some degree. We liked the 'secret' rooms. The west wing is furnished and has some interesting contents, e.g. suits of armour. The stables are truly impressive. The gardens and grounds are very attractive and pleasant... More

Had a great day yesterday with nieces, nephew and parents at Delaval Hall doing the Egg Hunt. Well kept grounds, friendly staff and sunshine, well worth a visit

The place has loads of history and Baron Hastings decided to sell as he had a large inheritance Tax to pay so needed to find a... More
