Always enjoy visiting the gardens here. All staff at entry point were extremely friendly and very helpful in helping me cope with my disability and dogs! Dog friendly gardens. Well passed their best, obviously, but still lovely to walk around. Beautiful autumn colours with some great photography options and good to see the volunteer gardeners in! Well done!

We visited this beautiful stone built property as a family. The staff and volunteers were very friendly and informative. The small but perfectly formed organic garden contained a number of unusual apple and pear varieties, including some local ones. As it was autumn we were able to purchase some examples. The outdoor garden cafe offered a good range of food, much greater than many other larger properties, including a Vegan victoria sponge which was delicious.

Looked forward to visiting as the Hall had finally reopened. It's set beside a river with a small arch bridge and an interesting village nearby. Lots of walks you can do from the car park. The small but beautiful garden was past its best, but this is October. The house was a surprise, though. The Grand entrance hall was filled with a cylindrical art installation about rhinoceroses. It was difficult to see the rest of the room for this large grey MDF structure. Through into the next room where the friendly guide explained they had decluttered the room for safety. Presumably you can catch COVID-19 from antique furniture. Another piece of art was stretched out along the remaining tables and consisted of some autumnal style shapes in bright yellows, oranges and browns. It was very pretty but hardly in keeping with the building. Following the one way system, you go upstairs. The principle room here has been enhanced by two large modern tapestries on a theme of something like friendship, or at least involving people hugging each other. A simple one way system operated round the room, turning it into a bit of a roundabout. Then along a corridor where you could peek into the remaining rooms but not enter them. From there it was up to the attic where there wasn't very much except a fine display of empty modern bookcases in what used to be a small shop. Then you're down and you're out and done. I think I was in the building for around 6 minutes. The couple in front took about the same time the couple behind had caught us up. It was almost as if the National Trust were embarrassed about this historic building and instead had filled it with things we might find more interesting. Overall, a little disappointing.

A prebooked visit to the lovely Nunnington Hall. Staff were all very friendly and we got to learn about the ghost in the house. They had an interesting Grayson Perry tapestry exhibition in one room - this may divide people but we thought they were very interesting. All Covid measures followed in this new world. Not all rooms are open at the moment but there is enough to see. Lovely gardens and the peacocks are very friendly, they don't seem to be very scared of much and far more interested in our cake than us! Outside seating for cafe.

We stopped here as we were leaving Yorkshire and I am so pleased we did. The gardens were lovely and inspiring but what amazed me were the Grayson Perry tapestries. I could have spent ages looking at them but due to COVID restrictions this was not possible, Nevertheless I had enough time to enjoy them.
