  • Fantastic house and very helpful and friendly guides. Very interesting textile exhibition and a great play area for the kids. Didn't do much walking in the grounds as it rained quite a lot but did do a little bit (with a very young child walking) and quite enjoyed it. Very tasty soup at the coffee shop where we had our lunch.
  • 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.
  • Very chatty and knowledgeable guides. Not very much parking space. Grounds were nice, but seemed quite small, although I might have not seen all of it.
  • Had a wonderful time here today and enjoyed the Lancashire countryside on the journey to the hall. All the guides at Gawthorpe are very knowledgeable and interesting. There are some super events in the coming months that I shall be returning to see. The grounds and gardens are beautiful, despite the inclement weather today.
  • Great old Elizabethan house. Fantastic interior and nice small garden. Staff very friendly and helpfully. Would recommend!
