Temple Newsam reviews
We visited the Farm and was quite disappointed. Not many animals here anymore and no birds due to bird flu. It all seems quite run down and old, despite the rising charges to get in. To add insult...

What a fantastic park with lots of different attractions. There is a beautiful house, cafe, farm and GoApe. Great scenery, lovely to walk with either with a family or a as a couple. Plenty of parking nearby! Would recommend to anyone. Went during a weekday and it was so peaceful. Lovely kept grounds in Leeds.
Historical building with an interesting past. Henry the XII slept here. The manor is kept in very good shape and has a lot to look at inside and out. It is well furnished and you can get the feeling of the period. The staff was very informative and enjoyed sharing their knowledge. There are play stations and dress up for children. A wonderful place to spend some time and to take children. Definitely worth the price of admission.
Beautiful stately house. Owned by Leeds Council. Part of Historic Houses and free to members of Historic Houses. Orginally Tudor it had gone through many changes of ownership and alteration. Beautiful interiors and interesting historic pictures elevate this lovely house. Once known as the Hampton Court of the North. So much to see. We didn't have time to explore the garden and lake. Nice cafe and gift shop.
A fab walk this time of year (May), the gardens are beautiful, the cafe had lovely fresh seasonal food on the menu with some great outdoor eating space. Good, quiet walks through the woods too. Great place to unwind.
My second visit here. This time with family members. A thoroughly enjoyable day. House itself has many original furniture pieces, or pieces made and sourced locally. Good details in each room of the highlights to see. Helpful and friendly staff. There seems to be some building work on the farm to make it more accessible to kids, so we didn't visit this time. But previously it was good. The grounds and walled garden are also good to walk around.
