Built in the 17th century and being restored to its former glory, Kirklinton Hall sits on a 14- acre site that features a beautiful part-walled garden. 

A scented rose maze and rose terraces surround the great hall and a herb garden provides traditional herbal cures. Let your thoughts wander while walking through the woods to the Faerie Glen, following the calm cascades of water. Relax at The Captain’s Seat, sit and enjoy the tranquillity. Take a walk through the orchard, the Japanese garden and the bog garden or admire the palace and the quince grove. Stroll among our ducks and pigs and take a look at our yurt and gypsy caravan. 

On your way out, why not pick up a trug full of produce from the garden or some home-grown plants to remember your beautiful day.
