Very nice if you like that kind of thing

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.

Saw a craft fair advertised to take place here so decided to visit. Enjoyed the few rooms I saw as this house is not open usually to the public but would have liked to see more. 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.

These gardens are listed as RHS partner gardens. There are only two very small parterre flower beds both of which are signed as 'private' all the rest is lawn and trees. The trees are also unidentified. I would suggest it is taken off the RHS list.

Very well kept attraction and a must for lovers of birds of prey. Fairly easy walking for the not so nimble. A pleasant little cafe with adequate supplies. The flying displays are very well done and knowledgeable commentary.

We went to the entrance to pay, we just wanted to walk the parklands as the dog was with us. I'd already read on the internet that this was possible for £1. The guy on the desk took my £3 but that was it, no map, no directions, no offer of help, nothing. I had printed a map already from... More

The gardens are behind Duncombe House and don't seem to be much visited. The gardened area is quite small, the 'gardens' are mainly lawns and woodland walks. It's a lovely tranquil place and nice to walk around but don't go if you want to see lots of flower beds. Entrance is same as the Birds of Prey centre. If you... More
