Burton Agnes Hall & Gardens

         
Driffield Yorkshire England
Description : 

Four hundred years ago Sir Henry Griffith built Burton Agnes Hall. Twenty-three generations of the same family have since lived in, looked after, and loved the magnificent Elizabethan home that you enjoy today.

Robert Smythson architecture, and a diverse art collection including exquisite Elizabethan carvings and the finest contemporary works, inspired Simon Jenkins, author of 'England's Thousand Best Houses', to describe Burton Agnes Hall as 'the perfect English house', one of England's twenty finest alongside Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace and Chatsworth House.

Concealed within its brick boundary, the Elizabethan walled garden will leave visitors mesmerised by flamboyant seasonal displays of colour, shape, texture and scents. Visitors are invited to explore several thousand plant varieties; a potager filled with fruit, vegetables and herbs; herbaceous borders, a jungle garden and a stunning collection of campanulas.

Children and adults alike will find entertainment in the giant board games, may lose their way in the maze, and are invited to explore the gardens with the guidance of Griffy the Goat's fun garden trail.

Visitors will delight in this award winning wonderland, which previously won Christie's Garden of the Year award.

To the north of the Hall lies tranquil woodland with wildlife figures to discover along the path. In February, thousands of snowdrops cover the ground to create an enchanting 'white carpet', and at Easter this historic woodland hosts thousands of enthusiastic chocolate egg hunters.

While wandering through the grounds, you may encounter an artist seeking inspiration. The artist in residence programme allows visiting artists to stay and work at Burton Agnes, year-round. Their artwork is displayed in the Summer House and inside the Hall.

The courtyard shops and cafe are open daily when the gardens are open. Access to the courtyard is free. Relax in the courtyard cafe where the gardens fruit and vegetables create delicious home-made meals and irresistible treats. The coffee is Fairtrade and roasted locally, and the restored 1963-vintage ice cream van offers delectable local ice cream and perfect coffees.

Unusual and handcrafted gifts and souvenirs can be found in the 'Home and Garden' Shop and Gift Shop and a year-round programme of Local artists display and sell their work in a courtyard gallery.

Open from 30th March to 31st October and 14th November to 23rd December, Burton Agnes Hall truly is the perfect English house: with its gardens and buzzing courtyard in addition, you are certain to enjoy a perfect day out.

Brodsworth Hall & Gardens

      
Doncaster Yorkshire England
Description : 

Catch a glimpse of Victorian life at this 'conserved as found' country house.


Brodsworth Hall was built and the pleasure gardens laid out, in the 1860s, as an up-to-date new home for the Thellusson family and their servants. It survived with remarkably few changes until taken on by English Heritage in 1990. The gardens have been restored, and the faded and worn interiors gently conserved, telling the story of the changing fortunes of the people who lived and worked here. Wander the many rooms of the house, roam the gorgeous gardens, stop for tea in the tearoom, and discover the recently restored game larder.

Brodsworth survives as a remarkable ensemble of a mid-Victorian country house, with its contents and gardens, lived in and adapted by the same family over three generations. The hall stands at the heart of the gardens newly laid out around it in the 1860s, and overlooks its historic park and wider estate landscape.

Brodsworth was built in soft local magnesian limestone in the Italianate style much used for both country houses and urban buildings in the preceding decades. It was intended not just for a gentry family and their guests, but also all the servants and activities required to support them.

This is reflected in the simple T-shaped plan of the house, and the relative scale and architectural detail of its two blocks. The two-storey main block has a strongly horizontal emphasis, with large plate-glass windows, banded stonework and restrained classical detailing. The roof is hidden behind a balustrade with urns emphasising the entrance and the two sections of the long south front which house the principal reception rooms.

In 2020 Brodsworth Hall will be celebrating 25 years of being open to the public. This will be marked by a series of events and exhibitions running throughout the year.
