This is a smaller stately home but about 9 miles to the north east of Newcastle, is very convenient to reach. The Hall lies amid beautiful gardens adorned with azalia, alium and rose beds. Now run by the National Trust

We have visited the hall before and just wanted to see the gardens before going home. They were beautiful and very peaceful. The Norman Church was wonderful with very informative and friendly guides, we were so glad we were able to go inside.

A beautiful, relaxed estate. Suite of furnished rooms, fire damaged hall, woodland walks, gorgeous gardens, loads of space for children and bonus church on the boundary. Cafe, shop, book shop, toilets, free car park.

Took a good three hours to do the visit justice but it was well worth it. House tells a fascinating history despite most of it being just a shell nowadays. Lovely gardens which visitors are encouraged to picnic in. Lovely little church in the grounds...More

I would say the same. Alternatively there maybe a number you can ring if you go onto their eb page. I've recently watched The Landmark trust programme and think it should be restored.
