    I had been here a few years ago but had forgotten much about it. It is slightly unusual as although it belongs to the National Trust it is run by the county council. It is a small but beautiful Elizab...  more »

  • Gorgeous interior and exterior design which has as the staff say "shockingly stood the test of time." I enjoyed walking through the multiple rooms on the three floors, and highly recommend seeing the textile collection; a combination of contemporary and past artists. The atmosphere and stories within the hall mark Gawthorpe as a true treasure. If you're not interested in going inside the hall, then sitting with a book in the tranquil garden whilst surrounded by the panoramic views might just suit your tastes. I went on a trip with college however the staff were kind enough to let us take photos providing the flash was off. A fascinating place with many intricate designs and tales.
  • Gawthorpe Hall is a great place to visit. The magnificent hall & beautiful grounds that are well kept. Ancient trees abound. The river Calder is nearby with lots of wildlife & if you are very lucky you may see a kingfisher or deer. We have seen them many times as we walk in this area often
  • National Trust owned show house but run by the local council. A couple of well presented rooms. Good quality original plasterwork in one room.
  • Beautiful place, only problem is that being disabled, this house presents many problems, all of them being the amount of stairs that are needed to see the house. If a person has a mobility scooter, the grounds are very uneven, and sometimes full of cobble stones, which is a real bone shaker. But, with a little effort this location is worth the visit. The room staff are very friendly and knowledgeable on the history of the house and its owners.
  • Beautiful small National Trust house in lovely grounds. Houses one of the best textile collections outside London.
