Parcevall Hall Gardens

North Yorkshire
BD23 6DE

Parcevall Hall Gardens are considered to be a fine example of the Arts and Crafts movement and are the only RHS and English Heritage registered gardens open to the public in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Situated at the head of a valley, the sixteen acres of formal and woodland gardens rise up the hillside and command impressive views of Simons Seat and Wharfedale.

The gardens were laid out by the late Sir William Milner from 1927 onwards and are planted with many specimen trees and shrubs collected from Western China and the Himalayas.

In the gardens are a Rock Garden with pools, an Orchard with old apple varieties, Formal Terraces, a Herb Garden, Woodland trails, a Camellia Walk, a Rose Garden, Chapel Garden and a Cliff Walk. There is year round interest not only for the plantsman, but also for anyone who enjoys peace and tranquillity in this natural setting.

The Hall itself is let to the Bradford Diocese as a retreat house. It is not open to garden visitors, but its architectural features can be appreciated from several vantage points.
