Description of Garden

The gardens at Nunnington Hall are particularly attractive with peacocks and ducks wandering freely, old varieties of traditional Ryedale fruit trees, and a collection of many different types of clematis scrambling up the walls along with roses, vines and cherries.

Meadows of naturalised bulbs and wild flowers create a beautiful display in Spring and early Summer.

History Of Garden

The sheltered garden is a rare survival from the 17th century and still bears traces of the original formal layout as well as an overlay from the 1920's.
