Newby Hall is an attractive property that dates from the 17C and 18C. It is renowned for its interiors designed by the architect Robert Adam (1728-92). Points of interest include the Gobelins Tapestry Room, the gallery of Classical sculpture, the Chippendale furnishings, and a collection of chamber pots. To the south of the house, lovely grounds slope down to the River Ure. For children, a miniature railway skirts the river as far as the Adventure Gardens.
