Enjoy an adventure in Gibside's 600 acre woodland. Along the way you can crawl along log bridges and clamber over tree trunks in the magical nature playscape, test your nerve on the low ropes course and let your imagination run wild in the Strawberry Castle fort.
During her time living at Gibside, Georgian's richest heiress, Mary Eleanor Bowes, devoted her time to the gardens; commissioning plant expeditions, incorporating exotic plants and even growing some here.
Embrace your New Year resolution here at Gibside. Join the weekly parkrun on Saturdays at 9am, or the Great Run Local on Sundays at 9.15am. If you're looking for a more of a challenge. Grab your head torch and book onto the Night Run taking place on Saturday 3 February from 7pm.
Relax with friends and family at Gibside. At the main cafe, you can stay cosy by the log burners while you enjoy a cuppa and perhaps some cake. At the Stables, there is a small cafe, ideal for a mid-walk snack, and a cheeky scone.
If like us, you're never quite ready for the adventure to end, tucked away within Gibside is Cut Thorn Farm where you'll find a yurt village. Here, you can stay in a Mongolian yurt or The Shepherds Hut. They're cosy, offer cooking facilities and allow you to enjoy the great outdoors for longer.
