  • We had a family day together and our 6 year old gran-daughter wanted to see a castle. Belsay fitted the plan nicely as they had a medieval day - kid's jousting training and designing shields etc etc. ...  more »

  • Really interesting place to explore, the quarry gardens are so unique. The castle and hall are great to look around too. Highly recommended
  • Lovely house. Good castle. Nice varied walks on a range of terrain. Special, family and children's events - my grandchildren loved the Medieval events with jousting and sword skills among other things.
  • I love this place. It's only 20 minutes from us so we've been there dozens of times. The house is fascinating and they often have events on. Then there's the quarry garden which always reminds me of Jurassic Park. Then there's the Castle, then there's the lake. What's not to like. The did in the cafe's good too.
  • Belsay is interesting because the three stages of development (Castle, Manor House and Hall) still exist. The hall often hosts fantastic art shows, but for me it is the gardens that are the star of the show. The formal gardens (with croquet in the summer) are wonderful, and the quarry gardens are amazing. Just a few miles from Newcastle, this one is definitely worth a visit.
  • Highly recommended. The hall, though unfurnished, is very interesting architecturally, inside and out. The terraced gardens are beautiful, and the quarry gardens are undoubtedly unique. The ruins of the castle are also worth a visit, providing good views from the roof.
