Went to Sutton Scarsdale Hall with my family the carpark was nearby so we didn't have to walk too far to the hall. Even though it was cordoned off you could still see the beautiful plaster work inside. The outside of the hall was very grand the sun was shining and really emphasised the beauty of the hall. Standing in front of the hall in the distance you could see for miles around across from the busy M1 you can see Bolsover Castle there are some great views, well worth a visit.

Unfortunately at the moment you can't wander through the hall as it is cordoned off as they are doing conservation work to it meaning you can only have a look around the outside. Hopefully once this has finished we may be able to go inside. On the plus side we did see some sort of bird of prey on one of the window ledges.

I have always loved this place and spent many times here with my family and by myself, when I just wanted thinking time. However now, its not the same. I understand that you can no longer go into the ruins due to health and safety, but there used to be notices about the place with photos of what it used to look like in its prime. The building has had some stone work added which doesn't fit with the style of building and they seem to be making a beautiful building into something not so beautiful anymore, but that is my opinion.

The building has been fenced off since my last review due to renovations. It is still worth a visit. Must have been a very grand home in its time. Sits along side the parish church & burial ground. All very well maintained. Good parking, no toilets, but no admission fee.

It’s been about a year since I visited Sutton Scarsdale and unfortunately, nothing much has changed in terms of the restoration. I’m not sure what they are doing to the hall, but I think even if you could go inside, there is not that much that you cannot see from behind the fence. It’s such a shame that this hall was partly demolished. Parts of the interior are on display at the Museum of Art in Philadelphia. Along with some at the Huntington Library in California after they were used as a set for a film, Kitty, in 1934. If you are in the area, it’s a nice place to go and have a look at. There are a few signs telling you about parts of the hall's history but not a great deal. It’s a nice place to have a walk around and take some photographs.
