Why so few National Trust Houses?
East Yorkshire possesses a wealth of historic buildings including many interesting and notable churches.
Many grand houses in the area remain in private hands but are open to the public. There are important historic castles open to the public, most owned by English Heritage. The following are just some of the best. They are all within an hour's drive of High Barn. You will not be able to fit them all in!
Beverley Minster is a gothic masterpiece and far quieter than better-known York Minster.
Burnby Hall Gardens in Pocklington has lovely lakes and the National water lily collection. It's unspoilt.
Burton Agnes Hall is our absolute favourite. Only seven miles from the cottages and an Elizabethan jewel. It remains owner occupied and the house feels lived in and loved. It's really not to be missed The house, gardens, garden centre and café will occupy a full half-day or more. They have an astounding gallery of modern art and outdoor garden spaces designed especially for children.
Sledmere House is another very beautiful and grand house within the estate village. Owner occupied. Surprising interior rooms. Lovely tea-room terrace and a new farm shop. Sweeping vistas created by Capability Brown.
Burton Constable Hall- now beautifully restored. A very quiet part of East Yorkshire
Castle Howard - splendid in every way. A very grand house, lakes, Kew's northern arboretum, wonderful restaurant and farm shop. It is possible to enjoy Castle Howard without paying entrance fees, by walking around it's boundaries and experiencing magnificent viewpoints.
Scampston Hall is 30 minutes away and has beautiful gardens and an upmarket restaurant.
Clifford's Tower - central York. York Minster. York Walls. The Treasurer's House, York. This lovely city merits several visits.
Duncombe Park and Helmsley Castle and Walled Garden. Approx 1 hour away. well worth the journey. Helmsley is a delightful place for a day trip. Some excellent places to eat and interesting shopping.
Nearby in this part of N. Yorks are Nunnington Hall, Pickering Castle, unmissable Rievaulx Abbey.
Nearer to home Scarborough Castle is worth a visit, perched on a stunning outcrop between North and South Bays.
Sutton Park is lovely, just north of York, as is Beningborough Hall
Wharram Percy is a Medieval Village only reached on foot , set in stunning Wold's countryside
