Description of Garden

York Gate Garden was created by the Spencer family over 43 years and is widely recognised as an outstanding example of late 20th century garden design. The one acre garden is divided into a series of garden rooms with different themes and in contrasting styles. These include a dell with half-hidden pathways and a stream, a white garden, a kitchen garden, a herb garden with summerhouse and a more contemporary garden with grasses and summer-flowering perennials. The garden is also noted for its striking architectural features and a succession of exquisite vistas.

History Of Garden

The garden was the creation of the Spencer family between 1951 and 1994. On her death in 1994 Sybil Spencer left the garden to Perennial - the charity that helps people of all ages working in, or retired from, the horticultural trades when they fall on difficult times.
