We had a good walk round and was truly impressed with the whole park. It was well maintained and clean and tidy. We bought a Christmas tree as well, that was freshly chopped and real good value, not heavily priced for the size we wanted!

Really gorgeous park with lots of places to walk in the grounds, particularly through the woodland. The park is free to walk around and if you like walking you can easily spend a couple of hours there.

Well worth a visit if you are in the area. We had a nice few hours just walking around taking in the fresh air and country side.

At the end of a long day of shopping, it was amazing to kick back for a walk in Duncombe Park. There are many trails, but we opted for a paved walk up a hill--sheep and cattle the only ones keeping gus company. What a lovely place to unwind.

We went there for a craft fair but also looked round the house. Very nice if you like that kind of thing. But if you don#t like country houses this won't win you round.

The stalls were o k but everything I saw was very feminine nothing for males to buy. The ladies on duty in the house... More

Went here on the 29th August for the craft fayre. The entry price was £4.00 each with a promise of over 40 stalls selling craft goods. It certainly didn't feel like there was that many. Most stalls were selling jewellery or cards. We were told we would be able to have a look around the house again we only saw... More

On a visit to the market town of Helmsley we decided to go to Duncombe Park as there was a craft fair advertised. The house is not normally open to the public so we thought this would be a good opportunity to see inside, how wrong we were. We were charged £4 each to enter, which was a charge made... More

Luckily for us we are in the HHA, otherwise we wouldn't of been happy if we had payed. We only walked some of the parkland so unable to comment on the bird of prey centre, but the parkland was a big disappointment, there's nicer walks outside the park and they're free. Don't waste your money.
