visited with my husband who can not walk far. Working out where to park is interesting! If you want to use the toilets or have a cup of tea, parking at the disabled drop off is no good as the facilities are down a slope and there are cobbles - not good for a mobility scooter. Best to drive to the tea room and ask to park there although technically a staff only area. The hall is only accessible up a few stairs so not good for wheelchairs. Only the ground floor accessible on the level. Disappointed that there wasn't more of a shop there. Nice place and I think the grounds looked interesting but as I couldn't take my husband in the house I wasn't able to discover them.

This property is worth a visit as it has good gardens and walks and the house has some wonderful ceilings which are hundreds of years old and unusual in these properties as most houses have such bland and plain ceilings. The staff are well informed and helpful. There are plenty of rooms to see over 3 floors and several display s of embroidery which was the art of a former resident. There are some good unspoilt views and a good area to paint or photograph. The cafe is a fair size with a restricted choice of food and the car park is not the largest. The entry is very fair and worth the cost more than some trust properties

A well kept property with very informative staff and the embroidery / lace displays were amazing. I am from this area originally and never knew of its existence but would like to return for future visits.

The guides spoke clearly and passionately and really brought Gawthorpe Hall to life learned so much, this is the best National Trust property I have been to, although in the book it said it opened at 11 when it opened at 12. Why are they not open in a morning
