This was my first visit to Belsay Hall and i was really disappointed. The hall is 19 empty rooms, due to some legal reason, great if you are interested in Greek architecture. No information in the hall unless you buy the guide book at £4...More

No, but I would argue you don't need one with the long walks, wife paths, trees and wide open spaces.

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.
