“Great craft fair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

A wonderful house and grounds.
There is a craft fair Easter, August and in November and that is the only time the house is open. There is a £3.50 entrance fee but it is well worth it, There is some wonderful Jewellery by Trudy at the fair.

Really great estate where you can walk for hours and not come across anyone. Beautiful scenery and wonderful house. Definitely worth a visit....

“Country Walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Great old house, grounds seemed a little tired and uncared for and the walk down to the river through the woods is very steep, not to bad going down but the walk back up is hard! be warned. entrance is free however and there is a nice little park for younger kids to play on just by the car park.

“Worth a visit if in Helmsley”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Although I wouldn't recommend that anyone go out of their way to visit Duncombe Park - if you are in the area visiting Helmsley or walking in the area it is worth stop. Unfortunately the house has been closed to the public but the garden is nice a worth a walk on a nice day.
