    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 »

  • 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.
  • Even though the house is empty, it's interesting to have a look round especially as a lot of events take place. The gardens are jaw dropping especially the walk to the abandoned castle. The cafe is nice with good food.
  • A great place. The hall is interesting and has exhibitions held inside. The walled garden has very well established plants, flowers and tree's. The castle is surprisingly bigger on the inside. Good views from on top of the tower.
  • Fabulous gardens even in early spring but particularly as we head towards summer. More of a grown ups stately home I guess as there is not much emphasis on things for kids to do but to be honest that suits me. Wallington isn't far if you want somewhere more family orientated.
