The Garden at Old WesleyDale - Preview - Register/Login for full details

We have used the 'Arts and Crafts' approach to garden design to create a garden that is in harmony with the historic stone house and the surrounding unique outbuildings. This garden has evolved into a series of 'garden rooms' that lead from one area to another. The walled 'topiary garden', picking and potager garden, the white garden and the hot garden each have their own distinct personality while still providing that connection back to the house.

A most interesting unique visit
Peter and mandy - November 2015
A beautiful property steeped in history.The walled quadrangle or the wonderfully restored grand barn would make an ideal venue for a concert. The topiary hedges are a work of art and the garden has been beautifully landscaped. It is a garden to delight the senses and well worth a visit.
