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

Hurry up and sort this place out Helmsley.What a wonderful place this could be but not yet! A gardener with vision, (is there a modern Capability Brown?)is required urgently.Let the public know when and if this is going to happen and we will be streaming in.Too many years of neglect are obvious.Whoever is responsible should feel very ashamed.

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

My partner and I enjoyed the visit thoroughly, the staff at the park were excellent, polite, and very knowledgeable. the park was very clean and well kept, the two flying demo's used four different birds and was thoroughly entertaining.

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
