Perfect for a long stroll

Beautiful setting and a good voice of routes to walk, ranging in distance. The National Trust cafe serves a good standard of food and drink. Definitely worth a visit.

Have been meaning to go to Gibside for a few years and it was well worth the wait. Some lovely buildings and the grounds were fantastic, on my next visit will go early enough to go inside the church. Only downside was we were told by the cafe staff that they were shut for the day at 4 when there... More

This really is a beautiful place. There are a plethora of lovely walks to do. There s a hidden children.s rope area. The cafe is excellent. The chapel is unique. The walled garden is a splendid place to chill out. I particularly enjoy the wildlife that.s about ... especially the dragonflies and damselflies when in season. There.s a gd bird... More

I love the idea of these being pleasure gardens way back when, and the estate still shows the grandeur of things past, and is really interesting for adults. As National Trust members we have been here often. This time with our grandson of 16 months, and a different outlook on Gibside. So, we were very impressed with the play area,... More

First time we have been here, loved it and will definitely come again, we didn't manage to get round it all. Lovely walks, great views. Everything well organised, friendly staff, decent loos. We couldn't find the pub though, and came to the conclusion it was part of the cafe, which is made of wood and though it looked very nice,... More

Visited here a few weeks ago for the first time and we will definitely be back. The area was well maintained and later out, with a little something for everyone. Will definitely be back.

Was pleasantly surprised at what was actually available at Gibside. It is only 30minutes from our home. We have visited the 'more popular' Wallington and Cragside several times, but never Gibside. We took a picnic and met up with other family members here. The grounds are amazing with so many different areas to explore. We had our picnic then made... More
