Owner description: Castle Howard is one of England's finest historic houses, set in a thousand acres of sweeping parkland dotted with statues, temples, lakes and fountains. Inside discover world-renowned collections gathered by succeeding generations of the Howard family. Built over 300 years ago, today it still remains a family home.

We arrived before the main house was opened but there was plenty to see. We spent a good 3-4 hours here and loved it. There is a garden centre, farm shop, rose garden, extensive gardens, wooded area, two lakes one with a boat ride and a children's play area. Not to mention a good number of places to eat at. The gardens were lovely and we spent our time exploring them first. £1 for a 20 minute boat ride on the lake from the boathouse was a bargain. A lived in house with lots to see, many paintings and items of furniture. Well worth the entrance fee and topped off with a lovely scone from the Fitzroy room.

Great house, still lived in and used by the family! Little bits of personal stuff around the house! Beautiful looking house full of history! The gardens were also amazing, with avery impressive fountain! Good place for a family day out!

We spent 3 hours walking a round the gardens, and only covered half of them. the house was used for the film Brides head revisited.
And I found it a little disappointing, Compared to some stately homes.
