Lovely weather meant that we were able to wander round the grounds of York Minster and then visit this hidden gem. Garden was beautiful, and very quiet when we visited. Unusual property that was 'created' by a rich industrialist in the early part of the last century to show off his collections. Staff were very friendly and knowledgable. National Trust... More

We enjoyed our visit here, a little oasis of calm in the middle of York right by York Minster. We are national trust members so free for us to enter, although the little gardens and tea rooms are free for you to go around. We loved the house and thought the gardens charming and peaceful. We went on the ghost... More

Tucked away behind York Minster, this house is well worth a visit. The staff are very enthusiastic and eager to give information about the house If you have the chance, do go on the 30 minute 'ghost tour'.

Really interesting place, rich with history and lots to take in with friendly, knowledagble staff always on hand to help out. Unofrtunately, when I was there, the famous haunted cellars were closed (I can't remember the reason why now!) which was a real shame. Otherwise, a great visit.

Interesting house as it has a few different designs within it. Clearly built by an eccentric. We particularly liked the hole in the floor to fit the clock

We were surprised how large the house actually is, as we explored the numerous rooms and floors. As there is no audio tour, you will find yourself reading the placards in the rooms or asking the volunteers to ensure you understand what you are looking at. The owner left this to the National Trust and designed the house and various... More
