Lots to do here whatever the weather. Lovely walks, gardens,the farm animals and playgrounds for children, the house. You can easily spend a whole day here. There is a cafe which does good food and plenty of parking. One for the whole family

While visiting the house and grounds, you must look around the farm, but be warned, it can be a little slippery and muddy, but great for the kids.

Temple newsum is an excellent day out, and is better than some of the more well known houses in the area. Due to various improvements Elizabethan, Jacobean and Victorian influences are apparent . The underground cellar trip is fascinating.Grounds and gardens impressive , although rare breeds farm slightly dissapointing. Overall a great day out for all.
