Burton Agnes Hall & Gardens

         
Driffield Yorkshire England
Description : 

Four hundred years ago Sir Henry Griffith built Burton Agnes Hall. Twenty-three generations of the same family have since lived in, looked after, and loved the magnificent Elizabethan home that you enjoy today.

Robert Smythson architecture, and a diverse art collection including exquisite Elizabethan carvings and the finest contemporary works, inspired Simon Jenkins, author of 'England's Thousand Best Houses', to describe Burton Agnes Hall as 'the perfect English house', one of England's twenty finest alongside Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace and Chatsworth House.

Concealed within its brick boundary, the Elizabethan walled garden will leave visitors mesmerised by flamboyant seasonal displays of colour, shape, texture and scents. Visitors are invited to explore several thousand plant varieties; a potager filled with fruit, vegetables and herbs; herbaceous borders, a jungle garden and a stunning collection of campanulas.

Children and adults alike will find entertainment in the giant board games, may lose their way in the maze, and are invited to explore the gardens with the guidance of Griffy the Goat's fun garden trail.

Visitors will delight in this award winning wonderland, which previously won Christie's Garden of the Year award.

To the north of the Hall lies tranquil woodland with wildlife figures to discover along the path. In February, thousands of snowdrops cover the ground to create an enchanting 'white carpet', and at Easter this historic woodland hosts thousands of enthusiastic chocolate egg hunters.

While wandering through the grounds, you may encounter an artist seeking inspiration. The artist in residence programme allows visiting artists to stay and work at Burton Agnes, year-round. Their artwork is displayed in the Summer House and inside the Hall.

The courtyard shops and cafe are open daily when the gardens are open. Access to the courtyard is free. Relax in the courtyard cafe where the gardens fruit and vegetables create delicious home-made meals and irresistible treats. The coffee is Fairtrade and roasted locally, and the restored 1963-vintage ice cream van offers delectable local ice cream and perfect coffees.

Unusual and handcrafted gifts and souvenirs can be found in the 'Home and Garden' Shop and Gift Shop and a year-round programme of Local artists display and sell their work in a courtyard gallery.

Open from 30th March to 31st October and 14th November to 23rd December, Burton Agnes Hall truly is the perfect English house: with its gardens and buzzing courtyard in addition, you are certain to enjoy a perfect day out.

Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens

         
York Yorkshire England
Description : 

Stillingfleet Lodge Garden is a quintessentially English garden, managed to be as wildlife friendly as possible. It is our family garden, lovingly planted-up over 40 years and now comprises a series of small gardens surrounding our family home, opening out into an avenue that leads to a wild flower meadow. The planting emphasises a cottage garden style and every part is maintained organically. We purposefully leave seed heads as food for birds and limit cutting back to provide habitat for insects.
