Temple Newsam House approached from the south in the early autumn.

This magnificent Tudor-Jacobean stately home is one of the more celebrated historic houses in England. Boasting over 30 interiors of outstanding decor, and sumptuous collections of furniture, ceramics, pottery, “old master” paintings and silverware, the House is full of treasures to explore. Set in over 1,000 acres of beautiful parkland you can also wander the grounds, enjoy a picnic and visit the Home Farm.
