Scampston Hall & Walled Garden

Scampston Hall & Walled Garden

Details

Scampston Hall, home to Christopher & Miranda Legard and their family, is one of the finest examples of a regency country house in North Yorkshire.

Christopher & Miranda love to share their beautiful home and gardens, whether it be as a special venue for a wedding, a setting for a corporate event, or to day visitors keen to learn a little of the history of this fascinating building and to see the fine contents.

Lovingly restored by the Legard's, this is a family home and there are no ropes or other barriers to be seen; Sir Charles, Christopher's father, assisted by a friendly team of guides, enjoys taking people round the hall in small groups so that everyone can see everything at close quarters and ask plenty of questions.

Scampston Walled Garden is a stunningly beautiful contemporary garden, quite unlike any other. Designed by the renowned Dutch plantsman, Piet Oudolf, and featuring modern, perennial meadow planting alongside more traditional areas, the garden is open to the public from Easter to October every year.

Set within the 18th century walls of the original kitchen garden for Scampston Hall, today the Walled Garden has an exciting and unashamedly modern feel to and complements the adjacent 18th century 'Capability' Brown parkland.

The garden had been derelict for nearly fifty years when Sir Charles and Lady Legard undertook the huge renovation task. The Legards enlisted the help of leading Dutch garden designer, Piet Oudolf, and the design for the walled garden was conceived in 1999.

Since opening to the public in 2005, it has received a great deal of international acclaim. Although Oudolf's planting ideas are now much imitated, the Walled Garden is an outstanding example of how he combines his skill as a designer with his authority and knowledge as a plantsman. It still remains his largest private commission in the UK.

A garden guide is available on arrival which will give you a thorough introduction to the garden and its design. Planting plans are also available in a number of garden rooms to assist with identification.
