The details loked as a visit would be worthwhile, the place was generally a little tired could do with better tree management, a cheek attempting to charge extra for the "Lady garden". Cafe lacked any atmosphere in the larg room

It was raining when I visited this month so I had a damp tramp around the lovely autumnal displays - every shade of leaf imaginable! And it was with relief that I found the peaceful and quaintly old-fashioned Earl Grey Cafe. I had a comfy table looking out over the garden and was served quickly by a smiling waitress. The... More

This garden is fantastic with lovely exotic flowers and trees. The café is good too, good selection of teas and home made snacks.

Squeezed in a quick visit before the hall closed for the winter. Autumn colours were spectacular. Quite soggy under foot but good paths most of the way. Delicious scones and coffee in the tearooms most welcome. Disappointed church was locked as was part of the reason for the visit and no staff around to request it be opened.

Autumn is one of the most best times of the year to enjoy this beautiful arboretum. The tree collection is fascinating with interesting finds around each corner. Its a joy to explore the garden and wonder at the vision of the original plants men that developed the garden all those years ago and who could never experience the size of... More

We only stuck our noses in the gateway before being assailed by a man from a nearby wooden cabin to inform us that we could not enter because we had two dogs on a lead. As we had approached from the opposite direction to the car park (from Craster over fields and footpaths) we did not see any notices about... More

Lots of great things to see and do here. The earl grey tea rooms do great tea and sandwiches. The church has lots of history with its own cemetery. There's lots going on in the visitor centre and the country walks along the gardens are very pleasant.

We came across Howick Hall by chance and are pleased that we visited. Once the home of Prime Minister, Earl Grey (of tea fame), the estate now contains lovely gardens and a well-planned arboretum.

The gardens at Howick are superb with extensive areas to walk around and all in a wonderful setting. The visitor centre gives plenty of info. on the history of this lovely place and the Earl Grey connection of course. The tea room as other reviewers have said is really lovely and provides lots of good food. I had a lovely... More
