Ormesby Hall


Another National Trust property I’ve visited recently is Ormesby Hall. Ormesby Hall is a grade I listed building in Ormesby, Middlesbrough. The manor house was built in the 18th century in the Palladian style, with work being completed in 1754. The house contains significant plasterwork, a Victorian kitchen and laundry areas and gardens, with my favourite room being decorated in sky-blue and white. There are also a couple of rooms upstairs which house a model railway which is open to the public. The house and grounds were opened by the National Trust in 1983.


There’s lots of parkland and gardens to walk around – you can even play croquet on the lawn. The beautiful blue delphiniums were first to catch my eye as we explored the grounds.
