Goddards House and Garden



Please check websites of all organisations or businesses before you visit. With the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, many businesses are changing their opening hours.

Coronavirus update: The house, gardens, parks, toilets, cafes and shop are now closed to further restrict the spread of coronavirus.

Visit the former gardens of Noel Goddard Terry, of the famous York chocolate-making firm. Designed by George Dillistone, the garden complements the house's Arts and Craft style. With yew-hedged garden rooms, bowling green, wilderness gardens and plants for every season, it is also an oasis for wildlife.

Relax in the splendour of the historic Drawing Room in this Arts and Craft house; the former home of the Terry family. Enjoy homemade cakes and sandwiches with a selection of leaf teas served in this quintessentially British style.

Make yourself at home with the papers by the roaring fires on colder days or wander in the garden rooms. Located by York racecourse this hidden gem can be enjoyed as a destination to dine or to discover more about one of York’s chocolate families.

The Dining Room serves hot lunches or enjoy a G&T or Pimms on the lavender terrace. Book now for a memorable Afternoon Tea – complete with a tasty treat in honour of Terry’s most famous product – the chocolate orange!
