DAY ONE - Arrival

We depart from your home and travel Harrogate arriving at our hotel with time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO - Newby Hall & Gardens & RHS Garden Harlow Carr

We spend this morning at Newby Hall, a beautiful Georgian country house set amidst spectacular gardens. A tour of the house reveals its splendid interiors which includes some of Chippendale’s finest furniture and a rare set of Gobeline Tapestries. The award-winning gardens are a feast for the eyes with smaller gardens branching off from the famous double herbaceous borders leading down to the river. In the afternoon we enjoy a visit to RHS Garden Harlow Carr, where we can stroll along the lush streamside walk, admire the lavish herbaceous borders and relax in

the sweet-scented garden.

 

DAY THREE - Ryedale Folk Museum, Helmsley Walled Garden & Thirsk James Herriot World

This morning we visit Ryedale Folk Museum for a unique snapshot of life on the North Yorkshire Moors. The museum brings over 4000 years of history to life through buildings and collections, including an Iron Age roundhouse, a Victorian cottage and a 1950s shop. We begin the afternoon with a guided tour of Helmsley Walled Garden with its

themed garden rooms ablaze with colour and a haven for bees, butterflies and lovers of tranquillity. We then spend time at leisure enjoying a nostalgic look around Thirsk World of James Herriot, home of the famous vet and where he worked and wrote his series of books, which have been adapted for several television and film adaptations of Wight's books. There have been several television and film adaptations of his books, including the 1975 film All Creatures Great and Small and the BBC television series of the same name.

 

 

DAY FOUR - Scampston Hall & Gardens & Castle Howard

This morning we enjoy a tour of Scampston Hall, a fine Regency country house which retains the atmosphere of a much-loved family home. The Hall’s extensive grounds are captivating; with lakes, a Palladian bridge and the contemporary walled garden, designed by renowned Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf. In the afternoon we visit Castle Howard, one of England’s finest historic houses and the setting for the TV production of Brideshead Revisited. More like a palace, this opulent country house is situated within idyllic sweeping parkland dotted with statues, temples, lakes and formal gardens.
