A good NT hall yet to be refurbished

We arrived here on a blustery day & initially passed the entrance being in a stream of traffic. Once parked we found a lovely landscape, possibly a bit bleak in some places... read more

This NT property hasn't been in NT ownership for very long (in NT terms). It's unusual because the "house" is in three very distinctive parts each with its own character and story. The main house is being refurbished but is still widely accessible. The basement shouldn't be missed and make sure that you look and compare the areas that have... More

Such an interesting house to visit, with the most amazing spiral staircase each end of the house, one right hand spiral and one left, badly damaged in a fire, but partially restored. Good walks in the grounds

Visited Seaton Delaval hall expecting that there would not be a lot to see. However, we spent a good 4 hours looking around the house and gardens. From the welcome on arrival to leaving the staff could not be faulted. The guides in the house were so enthusiastic, welcoming and informative. There are a couple of places for refreshments. no...

As we are National Trust Members we decided to visit this Festival (also the fact that the live music acts were all excellent) and found we were not disappointed with event.You could freely walk around the Gardens as well as watch all this live music and purchase some excellent/fantastic foods. Only dissapointment is that it will be the last time... More

Pretty good car parking for a start---easy access for all mobilities--toilets seem in adequate for number of visitors--cafe is good--second hand bookshop area--quite a good idea--the main hall is obviously in a state of flux as it was handed over to the trust minus a roof--but has one now--and the gardens have a nice strolling feel--there is also a woodland...

We arrived here on a blustery day & initially passed the entrance being in a stream of traffic. Once parked we found a lovely landscape, possibly a bit bleak in some places. However the more formal parts of the garden were superb. Lovely tea room in the out-house / courtyard, super staff, & great food & drinks. Unusual allowing dogs... More

Being National Trust members and in the area, we took a drive over for a visit. A recent addition to the NT family of properties this hall is currently having some work done on it but in no way does that detract from the visit. A nice NT shop at the entrance with a friendly North American lady greeting us... More

National trust site sadly not much more than a shell I hope they have plans for this place when funding becomes available ..a little less attention from the volunteers would be nice we were being told every detail if we wanted to listen or not

Nice place to visit , unfortunately its not set up for coaches. There are no signs to tell your driver where to drop passengers. Dont do as I did and follow the car park sign. coaches drive straight up to the front of the hall, drop your passengers, then you have to leave and find somewhere to park up. Not... More
