I was quite content having a pint in the Feathers on the market square but the missus dragged me up to the park as she wanted to see the owls. I don't like to see animals or birds shackled. They should be free. Saw one eagle fly into the wall of its cage as it was spooked by the keeper... More

Although listed as an RHS partner garden Buncombe is only a neat lawn (large) with woodlands and a conservatory that you cannot enter. It has a tearoom listed on it's site and indicated when you arrive, but you have to pay extra to go in the bird sanctuary to use the tea room!! The woodland and river walks are ok... More

We were stall holders at the Easter Craft Fair and what a venue! The house is stunning and well worth visiting when it is open. The grounds are expansive and easy to loose yourself in and the bird of prey centre is well worth a visit too.

Visited this week and had the park virtually to ourselves. We did the circular river walk which was just beautiful and came back around the front of the house which is imposing. All for £1.00 each! Good paths and unspoilt countryside to enjoy. Only refreshments available here are from a coffee machine..there is no café as such. Some surprising views... More

Love escaping in the grounds and rambling with the dog. A smashing walk into Helmsley too. Did find the Birds of Prey exhibition rather expensive especially as they tour with the birds .

Gorgeous flat river bed area; huge areas to let the dogs run and splash in the river. In winter, the fields are free of sheep. A very good walk for all ages!

The park is pleasant but the main attraction is watching the various birds of prey flying without being restrained. As they are hunting birds they can only be flown one at a time otherwise there could be attacks on each other. See them secured in the open outside their cages but otherwise there is not much else to see in... More
