I have been here pre-COVID and visited the house but today's visit was just to the land and gardens. I was two months later in the year with sun and this does make a difference as it looked very green and full of life. I hope to go back later this year when it is fully open.

There are two cafes on site as well as one set of toilets that meet current guidelines.

We’ve been here many times over the past lockdowns, as the walk around the grounds is lovely. Despite the fact that the car park is frequently full or overflowing, we find the route itself rarely feels too busy, particularly when compared with others around or in York. Despite having to reserve tickets to go into the actual National Trust gardens, you don’t need this in order to park there which is often why it’s so busy. The gardens inside are lovely too, and there’s a little cafe that does good pasties, though the sausage roll wasn’t as good.

Received warm welcome on arrival & got the Easter egg hunt for the kid's who really enjoyed walking around completing the questions sheet while the kid's enjoyed their chocolate eggs, the playground was well equipped & tidy.

First visit to Beningbrough since before lockdown. Usually have a lovely day out there but unfortunately felt really disappointed on this occasion.
Had to queue to get through entrance lobby despite having booked an allocated time slot.
Then had to walk the full length of the grounds to go to newly built toilet block only to have to queue again whilst blocking paths for visitors trying to pass by. Very difficult to socially distance.
Although gardens were still worth visiting and garden staff obviously working hard to restore them to their former glory the biggest disappointment was the house itself.
Only top floor open to visitors which has had all furniture and paintings removed and is now a gallery for exhibitions.
This gave the house a rather empty and forlorn atmosphere despite the staff trying hard to make positive comments about it enhancing the rooms architecture!
Understand that the original paintings in the house were on loan from National Portrait Gallery and have now been returned.
Having recently visited several other NT properties I feel that Beningbrough was disappointing in the experience it provided for visitors to the house. Lots of almost empty rooms and no information whatsoever about the history of the property.
Hopefully things will improve in due course.
