this is one of the finest mansion houses in the north east which has not been owned by the National Trust for very long but they are carrying our improvements all the time. Well worth a visit

All NT cafes are acceptable. This one is small and limited in its range of food, but we had a good sandwich and a tasty panini. The service is efficient and friendly. It was full on a sunny but cold October day; could be a bit crowded in summer.

The major problem with this hall was the lack of signs both to and from the property. there were signs on the road to many different properties but not this one therefore a lot of guess work is needed to find it. Once you have found the place it is well worth a visit. It has not been long acquired... More

Only recently acquired by the National Trust who continue their major renovations of a fabulous building and its adjacent gardens. Well worth a visit and then try to return within next 12 months to see how much has been achieved. Great open spaces for children, as well as a craft room and imaginative play area to keep them occupied. There... More

Just a little bit off the north-south route from Newcastle to the beaties of Northumbeland but worth the detour. THe Hall itself is grand although gutted by fire in 1822. It is easy to imagine it in it's splendour and the home of the 'Gay' Delavals (i.e. Gay in the original snese of the word). It was the party capital... More

A relaxed experience from arriving. No long drive to get there, just past Whitley Bay on the main road. Wind your way around the beautiful grounds for wild spaces, old trees and formal gardens with beautiful flowers. Mid restoration hall is still open to see the work in progress and original features. Lovely staff, eager to help and pass the... More

The Hall is a work in progress, slowly being restored and extra parts are due to be opened up. The gardens were stunning when I visited, well worth the trip just for that. As usual the NT staff were very good.
