Newby Hall

Stunning double herbaceous border leading down to the River Ure.

Discover Sylvia’s Garden. The three sunken levels are surrounded by yew hedges and filled with roses, iris, peonies, alium and dahlias giving year round interest.

In 1990s, a wall was built in the Autumn Garden to protect the shrubs. Look out for Colletia armata ‘Rosea’ and Poncirus trifoliata and a collection of Hydrangea and Salvia.

The atmospheric Rock Garden with its criss-crossing paths, waterfall and unusual plants has recently been restored.

Other areas of the garden to enjoy include the Water Garden, Robin’s Walk, Woodland Garden and the Tropical Garden.

The house is now home to Richard and Lucinda Compton.

There are boat trips on the River Ure and a Miniature Railway.
