We visited Howick Hall this September. sadly by this time of year everything was starting to look drab, and we felt the admission charge was excessive, if this was all they had to show. There are extensive woodland walks, but the paths are grass, and unkempt, the restaurant was manned by surley staff and was well over priced for the... More

Spent a really nice morning here, the gardens are quite wild looking which was refreshing. The walks in the grounds were also lovely, long enough to forget that you were in the grounds but you are still close by the the cafe and house.

Beautiful leaves and still plenty of colour in the gardens. The team room has a lovely atmosphere and is well worth including on your visit for a cup of earl grey!

Visited mid-October. Although not the best time to see the gardens it was a sunny day and there were some superb glimpses of autumn colours amongst the trees. I was amazed at how extensive the gardens were and I think you would be doing well to cover it all in a day. Tea room a little pricy but a good... More

We visited Howick Hall Gardens on a dull day in September and we loved the feeling of peace as we walked around. No, it isn't a manicured "don't touch" show piece but we enjoyed it all the more for that. We felt as if we had the gardens to ourselves most of the time. The little church is lovely and... More

We visited Howick Hall in September. There seemed little of any interest at this time of year and we felt the admission charge should be reduced to reflect this. There are extensive woodland walks, but the paths are grass, and had not been cut recently on our visit resulting in very wet feet! It might be better earlier in the... More

This is the place if you like peace and quiet, ambling through naturalised woods and informal planting. A great deal of care has been taken with the planting but it somehow just feels natural. A place where you can walk for ages without meeting anyone else. Different parts of the garden come alive in different seasons. We have been before... More

Home if a Earl Grey tea thus is well worth a visit. The house is not open, apart from the tea rooms, with excellent choice and very friendly staff. But it is well worth a visit for the beauty of the grounds, both the formal gardens and the woods beyond! We spent 3 hours just wandering round the different walks... More
