Scampston Hall Walled Garden

Malton

With internationally acclaimed Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf at its helm, it’s no wonder plantspeople are drawn to the visually arresting Scampston Hall Walled Garden. From his architectural use of grasses, which look like frothy waves rolling across a green sea to the theatrical foliage of the perennial meadow, which provides a counterpoint to the serenity of the silent garden, there is plenty here to keep curious gardeners occupied. Elsewhere, visitors can take a stroll along an avenue of lime trees before wrapping things up at the Mount, a large pyramid structure offering sweeping views over this design-savvy garden. Don’t forget to swing by the nursery, where you’ll find an array of unusual plants which have been lovingly propagated by the garden team. And if you fancy waking up to a room with a view, consider staying at one of the estate’s characterful park lodges.

Bramham Park & Garden

"Bramham Park is a grand and unusual house, but its gardens are grander and even more unusual" wrote Prof. Nikolaus Pevsner.

This and the fact that it was designed only as a summer holiday residence, perhaps explain its relatively modest size.
