Explore the beautiful, walled rose-garden, with a summer house, lily-pond, classical urns as well as traditional English symmetry.
The wide lawns and garden are framed by yew hedges, a topiary and an avenue of Irish yews; spreading cedars and beeches complete a very traditional setting within an ancient 300 acre park of veteran oak trees (some not less than 600 years old) and many other ancient tree species.
Our head gardener has worked tirelessly to create a glorious rose garden. With the help of students from nearby Otley College, the garden has been transformed over the last two years.
Recent renovations include the repositioning of hundreds of metres of original york stone paths, the Summerhouse – now licensed for outdoor wedding ceremonies and restoration of many classical urns within the garden.
Alternatively, join us for one of our House Tours and it will give you the opportunity to explore the gardens too! …and if you are interested in becoming a garden volunteer, please contact us for more information.
