Ormesby Hall, Middlesbrough
An intimate family home with formal gardens and sprawling parkland.
A working estate on ancient farmland, with the Pennyman family home at its heart, is the last surviving historic estate in Middlesbrough.
The 400-year-old estate has had many owners, from the scandalous Sir James Pennyman, the 6th baronet, to the generous Ruth and Jim. Uncover the family’s stories as you explore their much-loved Georgian mansion home. Visit the servants’ wing and see the working model railway layouts.
Enjoy a treat from the tea room before a stroll through the seasonal garden, with newly revealed vistas, or follow the Pennyman woods trail to discover the wider estate. Families can play in the natural play area, enjoy a game of croquet and have fun in the family room.
