Dog walking heaven

Long or short walks - you choose ! River walk is lovely and peaceful. Short walk out of Helmsley if staying in the hotels there

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

Fabulous and free! Great views, stunning scenery, beautiful building. You have to pay to see the birds of prey. Walk by the river and stroll round the grounds. Fabulous in any season we have seen them all!

As my wife and I were staying at The Black Swan in Helmsley and didn't want to drive anywhere, we walked up to Duncombe Park quite early after breakfast. Although access to the stately house wasn't available (it's still a private home and only open certain Bank Holidays) the grounds were absolutely beautiful and were immaculately tended. We didn't bother... More
