Although I am a member of the National Trust Gibside allow cyclists in who are not members. They also give you a voucher for a free cup of tea or coffee. Great value and now my friends are keen to join too.

Dogs welcome in grounds on leads; assistance dogs only allowed inside chapel and cafe's. Dogs are allowed in the library at the stables, which can be used to eat your cream scone and tea if it's rainy!
