Newby Hall, the family home of Mr & Mrs Richard Compton, is one of England’s finest houses, an exceptional example of 18th century interior decoration.

Built in the 1690s in the style of Sir Christopher Wren the house was later enlarged and adapted by John Carr and subsequently Robert Adam. The superb contents of the house, collected by Weddell, ancestor of the Compton family, on the Grand Tour include a rare set of Gobelin Tapestries, a gallery of classical statuary and some of Chippendale’s finest furniture.

Visitors to Newby Hall can enjoy the 25 acres of award winning gardens full of rare and beautiful plants.

The famous double herbaceous borders are flanked by numerous compartmented gardens such as the rose and autumn gardens and the water garden.

Newby Hall holds the National Collection of Cornus – including a Cornus kousa planted in 1937

Add to this a wonderful children’s adventure garden with a moated fort and water play features; a miniature railway to ride, a woodland discovery walk and a contemporary sculpture park and you have a perfect day out for all ages.
