An amazing place, a real shame to see it in its current state after its lavish beginnings. Enchanting

There's a ruined castle, a deserted stately home and an amazing garden here. We spent four hours here. The food is great, too. A must.

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

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 !

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.
