Seaton Delaval Hall is an English baroque house, built between 1718 and 1728 for Admiral George Delaval.  The house is regarded as the finest example of design by Sir John Vanbrugh; who also built Blenheim Palace and Castle Howard.  Of particular note are the Coach House with a collection of interesting vehicles and a restored Ice House.

The gardens were designed in 1947 by James Russell and have been enhanced by Lady Hastings.  A walk around the ground reveals statues; topiary; a pool and fountain and is a relaxing and pleasant way to spend an hour or so.
