Ormesby Hall, Middlesbrough

An intimate family home with formal gardens and sprawling parkland.

Ormesby Hall, Middlesbrough

Home to the Pennyman family for over 400 years, this house holds many stories.

From their involvement in the English Civil War, the scandal of Wicked Sir James, and more recently the lives of World War One survivor Jim and his arts loving wife Ruth. Visit the servants’ wing and working model railway layouts. Plus, enjoy a treat from the tea room before a stroll through the gardens and stunning parkland. Families can get messy in the mud pie kitchen, explore the wild garden area, enjoy a game of croquet and have fun in the family room. Events programme throughout the year.
