The Walled Gaden
Is in full cultivation. Laid out in the mid 18th century, it retains the essentials of its original design, combined with sympathetic replanting in the English style.

Two paths meet at the central feature, a pleasure pavilion (open to visitors) with a small ornamental pond and a fountain before it. The main approach to this attractive building is flanked by herbaceous borders and high yew hedges. There is a fine view from its front windows of the garden's main gate and the park beyond.

Of its two wings, one is a working Peach House and the other has been turned into a Vinery with a bench for visitors' use.

At different times during the summer there are also borders of gold and silver plants; of old-fashioned peonies and of irises

What visitors most frequently comment on is the tranquil atmosphere.

A small sales area specialises in unusual hardy plants. Pick-your-own fruit is available in season.

Please note Dogs must be on a lead in the garden and the grounds.

The best way of getting to our garden is by car; the nearest railway station,Thirsk, is several miles away and bus services are very limited. The best approach by car is to turn off the A61 Ripon/Thirsk road at the Melmerby turning. Go straight through the village of Melmerby and of Wath. On leaving Wath over a little bridge you see our park wall on your right follow this for 200 or 300 yards and then turn in through the signed gateway. Where the drive divides, keep to the right. The car park is on your left and the garden entrance a little further on. Enjoy your visit.
