Rokeby Park is located not far from Eggleston Abbey ruins. The outside gardens are beautiful and so is the walk along the river, However, I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it

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

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.
