An architectural treasure in Teesdale, SW Durham.

An original and effective variant of the Palladian formula, Rokeby Park was built by Sir Thomas Robinson ca. 1730.

It was acquired by J.S. Morritt in 1769, in whose family it has remained ever since.

Paintings and period furniture are on display, together with a unique collection of needlework pictures by Anne Morritt (d. 1797) and an unusual 'Print Room'.

The house, known as the setting for Sir Walter Scott's ballad 'Rokeby', is open to the public and group visits are welcomed.

2014 Open times - Monday 5th May then each Monday and Tuesday from May 26th until September 2nd inclusive, 2.00pm - 5.00pm (last admission 4.30pm).
