The reputation of these gardens is well deserved, they are beautiful. A very well presented set of garden rooms and the spectacular borders are worth the visit alone.

We spent the first part of a day at Newby Hall, it did not disappoint. I am sorry to have taken so long since we were there (end of June 2014) to review, but was looking at my photos of the trip and it brought back fond memories. OK, the house is fantastic!!! The furnishings are maintained wonderfully. The staff... More

We stopped off at Newby Hall on our way to a holiday cottage in North Yorkshire. As others have said, the entrance is somewhat understated and the drive to the actual House very long. It was a lovely sunny and dry September day so parking on the grass wasn't a problem. After a picnic lunch, we decided to do the... More

Visiting the hall consists of a guided tour. The hall is beautiful and the guides are very knowledgeable. There are lots of interesting facts connected to the history. I think kids would be very bored though. The gardens were no it at their best as it was late September but would be worth a visit in spring or summer.

To get to this lovely place you have to travel down a really long drive, but it is well worth the trip after turning the corner to see this spectacular building. This was a beautiful welcome! Going into the entrance the people who were on had good customer service could not fault, but maybe smile a little more. Going on... More

We went by boat and moored near the miniature railway. Beautiful gardens plenty of gift shops, restaurants and toilets. Lots for kids to do miniature railway, boats, play area and fountains. The gardens are lovely it costs extra to go into the Hall so we did not go in

Visited a couple of times and yes it's picturesque but wanted to point out if you have very small children (ours are 2 and 3) there isn't a huge amount they can do, especially independently. Swings, tiny overcrowded sand pit and fountain splash (very slippery so bumps beware) but for example the slides supposedly for little children are accessed by... More

Visiting Newby Hall has been on my to do list for many years so en route home from a holiday in Yorkshire it became our lunchtime stop. As you parked I was aware of a beautiful reception building and well stocked plant centre. Walking to the restaurant we passed lovely displays of dahlias before eating delicious homemade soup and sandwiches.... More
