Overview
More
Imagine stepping 400 years back in time into the home of a 17th-century cloth merchant. See the changes that he made and discover why these were sadly never completed. Take a step away from the hectic everyday and experience the tranquillity that is East Riddlesden Hall. In contrast to the atmospheric exterior, this friendly house is brought to life through stories told by room guide volunteers. The house is home to a wonderful array of seventeenth century needlework and original exquisite plasterwork ceilings created by local craftsmen.

As with all NT properties, volunteers are on hand to help with questions. However, the volunteers here are very well in formed and friendly, making the visit most enjoyable and informative. The small informal gardens are well worth a look.

We visited here today with our baby. There is a nice pond at the front which has plenty of fowl and some large goldfish. The Hall isn’t very grand if you are expecting a stately home, it was the home of a wealthy farmer in...More

The guides are enthusiastic and knowledgeable, however let down by a very poor product which is unexciting and pointless. Limited exhibits presented without imagination.More

This is a small NT property and is a bit uninspiring from the road outside, but what a difference when you turn down the drive. Peaceful and tranquil. Plenty of parking, pretty gardens and a small but very atmospheric house dating back to the C16th....More

I don't honestly know . all I can say is that I would describe their catering services as somewhat constrained and I think it's unlikely.
