The intimate Arts and Crafts style family home of chocolatier Noel Terry and complementary gardens
Discover the cherished family home of Noel Goddard Terry, of the famous chocolate-making firm, Terry’s of York. The house was designed by architect Walter Brierley in the Arts and Crafts style and is complemented by four acres of gardens, designed by George Dillistone. A hidden gem - only a stone's throw away from York City Centre.
The house has selected rooms displayed to give glimpses into the family home and working chocolate factory. The garden includes yew-hedged garden rooms, bowling green, wilderness gardens and plants for every season; it is also an oasis for wildlife.
Note: The house is also used as regional offices for the National Trust in Yorkshire.
