  • Following the recent heavy snowfalls (end Feb 2018) we walked in Duncombe Park. There were two main trails - a circular river walk of about 3 miles and a slightly longer trail (about 3.5 miles) leadin...  more »
  • A great place to roam and unwind in any weather. We've visited in all seasons and watched the landscape change. Dogs must be kept on a lead where the livestock is but that's not a problem. In the hear...  more »
  • The grounds for Duncombe Park are so vast and stretch for miles which makes for some great walks. There are so many different paths and walkways to make your walk as long as you choose. We recently di...  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.
