Gibside is good value with some lovely walks, a walled garden, chapel. Also a nice place for some food and refreshment, the seating area has recently been improved. Recommendation?... Soup, sandwich and a pot of tea, the bowl of soup is huge. Decent value for money. Go judge for yourself.
We really enjoyed our visit to Gibside & one that we would certainly like to repeat in the near future. There is so much to do that one visit is not really enough. The scenery is simply stunning & is complemented by the many monuments & ruined buildings. The woodland walks are well laid-out & accessable to all, with the... 更多
Lovely area for walks, with interesting buildings, but the welcome wasn't as warm or informative as is usual for a National Trust Property, the leaflet is confusing, and the presentation is rather dumbed-down - for instance, the guidebook is an attractive souvenir but very heavy on (probably sensationalised) family history and very light on the history of what you can... 更多
We were lucky enough to visit on Heritage Weekend and had a tour of the crypt. Very interesting and informative. The grounds are so nice and family friendly. Lots of people having picnics and playing games. We were suprised how far we walked and sat in the walled garden on deck chairs for a while. I bought another ornament for... 更多
We visited on a Saturday beer garden evening. We all had a tasty wood fired pizza and my husband enjoyed trying the variety of beers from wylam brewery. When it rained we headed indoors, the music played gave a good vibe to the comfortable surroundings. Fab evening will definitely be back

We visited many of the main sites set along the purple/green trail and took it all at a leisurely pace. It's a place to take the camera as there are plenty of picturesque views to... 更多
Wandered around the ground when it was sunny. Cafe has a good selection of ale. ice cream in the park only takes cash, so that was a little annoying. gardens are interesting, and you can see bees in the hive.
Took advantage of the heritage day to visit Gibside with my 9 year old son. Although my son is very active he hates walking so that was a bit of a challenge to stop him moaning about that but we got to the low rope course fairly quickly and he loved it. Then a bit more moaning wanting to go... 更多
We visited Gibside after seeing it was free entry for the Heritage Open Day weekend and it's convinced us to buy annual passes! Lots to do for everyone, nice walk, things to see and places to play for kids along the way. Could go again and again and see different things every time. New play area for kids is good,... 更多
