The building is lovely and well looked after - with views through the trees of the burnley fc training ground. It's a small fee to look around the inside with volunteers in most rooms to tell you about the history and meaning of the artefacts on show. Nice walk around the grounds and surrounding woodlands. If it's rained the grass... More

This National Trust property is closed for about 12 months on 19th April for essential conservation work. In general terms the place looks 'tired' and needs an improved presentation of some very attractive textile and embroidery pieces from the last 100 years. Somewhat disappointing grounds and the café was already closed for 2015. Possibly one of the poorest of the... More

visited Gawthorpe on easter monday, limited parking. the hall was open £4 to look round but the grounds and surrounding area were free. it is a very nice park area with plenty of places to walk for young and old. the cafe is closed until 2016 whilst some restoration work is being down and the drinks van was packing up...

Traveled almost 2 hours to visit this property. Arrived at 10am and walked round the well kept gardens and grounds in the early morning sunshine ( see if you can spot the huge fossil fern and the Pugin Tiles) We had intended to visit the cafe next but we're very disappointed to find it closed. Luckily it did not spoil... More

We walked to Gawthorpe Hall from the entrance further away through some lovely woods. This house has stunning gardens and views. The inside is beautifully laid out and preserved, the best bit being the intricate ceilings and carved wood panelling. Each room has a volunteer to tell you about the history and the room which was fab, if a little... More

I can only echo what others have said, Gawthorpe Hall is externally very pretty with well kept gardens and a riverside location but if you've travelled some distance especially to see the interior you may be a little disappointed, all the more so if it's prohibited to take photos when inside the building. I will mention that they host a... More

This is the first public building we've visited in the surrounding areas that has not allowed photos. It's also the first national trust run home weve visited.. I don't know if they run other stately homes with this ruling but I think its completely unfair..considering you've paid to get in. Apparently it's being taken into consideration and under review..so I'm... More

We visited this wonderful historic hall and enjoyed being educated by the volunteer Guides whose knowledge and enthusiasm was outstanding. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing and learning about Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth and viewing her collections as well as all the other rooms within the hall including special visits to the library and kitchen as it was a heritage weekend. The grounds are quite... More

We visited the tea room first it had a lovely atmosphere, clean and the staff were very helpful. We were quite late so there was not much left but what we had was fresh and tasty. The hall is quite small and not all rooms are open. The guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. We found out a lot about... More

If you are interested in spending 2-3 hours at a beautifully maintained historic country house, this is the place to go. Staff there really informative about its history and contents . The grounds although not large are well kept.
