Duncombe Park, Helmsley, North Yorkshire
Duncombe Park is one of Yorkshire’s foremost historic houses and estates, and home to the Duncombe family. The original house was built in 1713 for Thomas Duncombe, and following a fire in 1879 the first Earl of Feversham remodelled the interiors. Following the death of the second Earl of Feversham at The Battle Of The Somme in 1916, Duncombe Park was leased as a girls school, but was returned to a loving family home in 1985 when it was lovingly restored and refurbished. It is set in 300 acres of dramatic parkland just 3 minutes from the centre of Helmsley, a picturesque, affluent, market town very popular with tourists throughout the year. As the house is no longer open to the public, our antiques fair will give members of the public a unique opportunity to look around the whole house as our fair will be set out downstairs in the servants quarters before heading upstairs to the main staterooms.
