A couple of weeks ago we met up with some friends and went to Newby Hall. Newby Hall is an 18th century house in North Yorkshire with 25 acres of award winning gardens. The house has featured in many television dramas and movies. ITVs adaptation of Jane Austen's 'Mansfield Park' was filmed entirely on location here.
According to this article it was even considered as a place to film Downton Abbey! This would have been very appropriate considering Newby Hall was home to a real Lord Grantham, from 1792, who passed the hall to his daughter, Lady Mary, and later became beset by complicated inheritances (sound familiar?!)
Within the gardens is a miniature railway and an excellent adventure playground with banana boat swings, pedalos and a zipwire! Basically this is a perfect place to come during the summer holidays as it has something for all the family!
For more information on opening times and prices visit their website here.
Linking up with Bonnie Rose for Travel Tuesday
Have you ever been anywhere which has been in a movie?
