I suppose I should have read the literature on the house before visiting as it was quite unexpected to find the house without furniture. However this was the wish of the family when the house was left to the nation, so that the Greek inspired...More

Wow, the architecture of this building is incredible. Love to see some history when visiting new places and st Nicholas cathedral is definitely one of them. Just marvelous!

Love what the owners have done with this old manor. They have not refurbished it at all and left all the rooms empty and decaying. The most striking thing is that all of the wallpaper in every room is peeling off walls and ceilings. The...More

Visited with Northumbrian friends. Lovely place on its 200tj anniversary. String quartet in the hall was very atmospheric. Beautiful rooms - shame it's frozen in a half restored state. Library was stunning. But then the gardens are amazing. Sited in the quarry where the house...More

I love Belsay Hall, the gardens are beautiful, the woods worth a walk, the Hall and castle are great for a rainy day. Watch out for events as they are always interesting.

I attended an exhibition about historical clothing here, and the costumes and display were fantastic. There isn't a lot to see inside the house, there is more to do outside actually, walking in the nearby gardens, quarry and to the ruins of the castle.

We didn't find one. But there are lots of open spaces to run round. The castle bit is half a mile from the hall. That is great for hide & seek !

Is it possible to get to Belsay Hall and Gardens from Newcastle using public transport ?

Response from 511blueskies |
Yes . You can catch a bus from Eldon Square Bus Station to Jedburgh which only runs a few times a day, not sure of the number. The bus stops at Belsay then you'd walk to the Hall grounds or get a lift.
