  • The parkland and gardens here seem to play second fiddle to the birds of prey centre, which does not interest us. No gardens as such, but attractive grassed terrace overlooking the river, and large ar...  more »
  • Visiting Helmsley for the day we were unfortunate that it chucked it down on and off throughout the day so we only managed a drive through the park. The grounds and house are very picturesque and we w...  more »
  • What an amazing site. It attracted 40+ full size steamers, 40+ miniatures, more than 60 Commercials, 120+ Tractors & stationary engines & 170 Vintage Cars & motorcycles. Several organs, models, workin...  more »

  • Lovely stately home but house not open to to the public. Some of the grounds are open without charge. The gardens are worth paying for but the views from the terrace are now blocked by the trees so what was designed to give a wide view overlooking Helmsley and its castle is now an avenue of trees. Would highly recommend the steam rally every July.
  • Set near a beautiful Yorkshire village, I've visited twice before and will be returning again as it really is a lovely place.
  • Great place, great steam rally!
  • Great place to visit
  • Attended the Duncombe Park Country fair on Bank Holiday Monday, the usual attractions, dog shows, children on horses etc, all in all very pleasant despite the usual British Weather. What I really objected to and why I have given this show such a low mark is the appalling propaganda we were subjected to by the man who introduced the Sinnington Hounds (probably the same person who wrote the article in the programme and who encourages all to join the Countryside Alliance and campaign against this Government's "malicious" Hunting Act!) He complained at length about how the laws of this land are preventing him and his friends from carrying out their proper purpose of hunting VERMIN i.e. Foxes. He had a platform from which to impart his knowledge about the hounds to people attending the fair but hijacked this platform to speak about political issues and undermine the government. Had I wanted to go to a rally I would have done. It spoiled what should have been a nice family day out and was totally inappropriate for the occasion.
