Yorkshire is home to some wonderful properties with plenty of things for kids to see, do and explore. Here are some reviews from fellow bloggers sharing their favourite National Trust days out in Yorkshire.


Beningbrough Hall

Beningbrough Hall is set in stunning gardens and is home to National Portrait Gallery paintings. Children are encouraged to be creative with crafts and workshops dotted around. There are also play trails to explore and a great wilderness play area to let off some steam.

Nicky, from Yorkshire Wonders, says:”There are several ride on trikes and bikes which the children can ride and then leave wherever takes their fancy. This becomes a bit of a treasure hunt for the children as to who finds a bike first. It’s a massive relief if they find them at the same time”

Brimham Rocks

Brimham rocks is a dramatic moorland rock formation surrounded by stunning scenery and wildlife. There’s nothing but good old fashioned fun here with rocks to climb ans and scramble over and plenty of space for a great game of hide and go seek. wellies are a must here, especially if it’s been wet.

Joanne, from Kids Days Out Reviews, says: “it is gorgeous, and a great place for an explore in the dirt and little hidey holes. Brilliant for kids of all ages who can climb”

Fountains Abbey

Fountains Abbey‘s remains are the most complete Cistercian abbey ruins in the country. There is plenty of space to play and climb and picnic. There are regular activities and trails throughout the school breaks too.

Cat, from Here Come The Hoopers, says: “The park was a big success with lots of wooden bits to climb, zip wires and den building section.  It was a bit damp but they went off anyway and were happy enough”

Nostell Priory

Nostell Priory is an 18th century house that was built on the site of a medieval priory. There is lots to explore and discover in the gardens and woodlands, with baby carriers and hip seats available to hire.

Cathy, from Mummy Travels says: “outdoors includes a huge kitchen garden, adventure playground with zipwire, walks around the lake and activity sheets to take along, plus formal gardens, woodland… you could probably come every week and not run out of areas to explore for a few months”
