This a stunning house with beautiful gardens. The volunteers there were great and really enjoyed talking to us. We decided to have afternoon tea which was delicious (The Terry's chocolate orange cake was amazing!). Would highly recommend!

I went for the first time with relatives recently, after having lived in the area for years. It's a bit of a gem tucked off the main road. The house is bigger than it looks from the road, and the gardens (even in October) were lovely. For someone of my age (42), there were lots of examples of Terry's products... More

An interesting family home and beautiful gardens, celebrating the Terry family and their chocolate. The staff are friendly and informative.

I am not a National Trust member so paid to visit the house which cost around £6.00. I thought this was a fair amount to pay. The rooms and exhibits were interesting the staff were very pleasant and engaging. The gardens were lovely and I think you would be able to look round these without paying but maybe that would...

I'd been meaning to visit here for some time despite driving past numerous times so finally made it. Not disappointed either as a real architectural gem of an arts and craft style of building. The furniture in it isn't what was in the house originally but in the same style of the era. There are rooms dedicated to the Terry's... More

We came across this gem of a 1920s Arts & Crafts family house by chance - and not long before it closed for the day. It was the home of the Terry family, and there was much fascinating information about them and their times. The guides were all friendly, informative and helpful, and did much to make this an extra-special... More

We enjoyed our trip, not ideal for a toddler but good for a whizz round. On a sunny day can see it would be lovely to sit and enjoy the garden. Interesting to visit and get some history

To one born and raised in York the Terry's name means more than a chocolate orange. Unlike the larger Rowntree's, Terry's refused to move with the times and from its heyday as an employer of 2,500 people the familiar series of takeovers and lack of investment made its demise inevitable. Goddards is the 1920's family home symbolising the good times,... More

Visiting this house, which belonged to the Terry family, of chocolate fame, is a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. We are NT members and often find the smaller Trust houses more interesting than the large ones. A nice touch was sherry in the drawing room (at £2 a glass). However, it was rather difficult for us...

I went this morning to visit off first time.i think it's too expensive for what you get. The gardens can be seen in less than 20minutes
