Surely with a house dating back to 1725 there are some stories to tell. Very very disappointing visit. Outside lovely, staff friendly but oh what a let down. £11 with guide book which is very old fashioned, not herd of social media. If wanting to...More

On an August Bank Holiday we wanted to get away from the crowds and discovered Rokeby was open, what a delight to visit. Beautiful house and grounds, very knowledgeable guides, and the needlework was exquisite. Very well worth a visit

We've been passed here many times, but didn't realize it was open to visitors! The house is really lovely, dating back to the 1700s with lots of original features and we were allowed to touch the furniture and sit on the chairs, which is something...More

Really interesting house to visit. Gardens simple but a delight. Walk to the river was lovely. Kind and helpful staff, particularly the car parking chap - a credit to all who let us see this magic real dolls house. Thank you.
