Burton Constable Hall is a large Elizabethan country house with 18th- and 19th-century interiors, and a fine 18th-century cabinet of curiosities. The hall, a Grade I listed building, is set in a park designed by Capability Brown with an area of 300 acres (1.2 km2). It is located 3 miles (5 km) south-east of the village Skirlaugh, East Riding of Yorkshire, England, approximately 9 miles (14 km) north-east of the city of Hull, and has been the home of the Constable family for over 400 years.
Lovely house, lovely staff. One of the very best I have ever seen. Well worth visit.
Was there on a mind, body and spirit fair. Great place! Will come again!
Magnificent ceilings. Helpful staff in each room to explain features and answer queries.
A beautiful house and grounds with wonderful events held in the stable yard area. You can also have a cream tea or lunch in the cafe.
Expensive to go around the house and grounds. Cafe was good. Not able get a wheelchair access every where.
Superior house in the same family since the Conquest. Beautifully restored. Good food.
Lovely walk around the 2 lakes and then a picnic. Cafe staff very helpful, altogether a lovely day out.
Loved this place, I recommend becoming a HHA member though as you can do many other historic houses. The only reason I'm giving this a 4 star is because the original women who served us needs some customer service training, you see she was a bit rude and disrespectful and extremely unhelpful, we had bought out HHA membership that morning and went to this house soon after, the lady refused to serve us as members because we didn't have cards but we had all our details and recipets and was told this is enough yet the women dismissed us like we where children, I am 24 and I expect to be treat much more professionally and when asked if there was anyone else who could help us she said no and then looked at the next people in the line.. Completely uncalled for and I don't think she should be on the front desk until she learns some proper customer service skills! We were rather shocked and disgusted at her manners.
Lots to see and lovely walks through parkland. The tea room is delightful too; food and drink sensibly priced. Overall, we'll worth a visit.
Visited the cafe for coffee and a hot chocolate on the way home, probably cost a little more than an ordinary little cafe but the drinks where great tasting and the surroundings clean and pleasant. Staff where friendly. Also had a stroll and a nosey around the stables and the clock tower, nothing spectacular but a nice way to pass an hour or so.
Wonderful country house and griunds. The house itself is full of treasures of furniture and scientific material collected by the Constable family over many years. The cafe is also great!
We visited over Easter and did the Easter hunt, kids enjoyed running around the grounds which were very beautiful and well kept, we didn't go inside the hall as this would have made it an expensive day out and the kids wouldn't have appreciated it so it would have been a waste of money. Overall a good day and would be nice to go during summer.
Reading reviews I expected better. It was the Easter holidays and they had Easter egg hunts and other bits on. Not as pretty as I had hoped and not much to do. Maybe ok for young children around 4 or 5 but I think others will get bored.
The guides are so helpful and not pushy. Lovely to get the history of the family who lived there.
Went to see christmas decs, great place with very knowledgeable staff. Would recommend.
Really nice place with lots of parking. We went for a easter egg hunt which junior loved. Will go back another year . Could do with a better prepared cafe. The cafe was lovely inside , the staff were great, the food delicious but it was cramped and everyone crammed in.
Lovely house and grounds. A real "Hidden Gem" in that not only is it a Gem, but its fairly difficult to find especially if you miss one of the Brown tourist signs when the verges are well grown in the summer. Went for the afternoon and found out there was a craft fair in the stables (adjacent to the cafe). The craft fare happens about 10 times a year and is well attended with some nice stuff. In the house there is some really exquisite furniture and antiques. Worth a visit
Wow! We stumbled across this while we were out and about. It's one of the best historic houses we have been to. The coffee shop was great and the journey up the drive was awesome - you can fully appreciate the grandness of the house. The guides were amazing and gave lots of interesting facts about the history of the house.
