Constable Burton Hall Gardens

Leyburn

Due to the late start to the season Constable Burton Hall wish to publicise a ‘Change of Format' for their open day on Sunday 25th March. The garden will be OPEN and visitors are very welcome. However, unfortunately Spring colour has not developed as expected and, due to very wet ground, it is unlikely that it will be possible to erect marquees as planned to provide tea and refreshments. The weekend is officially the launch date for the annual opening of Constable Burton Hall Gardens but the Wyvill family would still like to support the NGS on Sunday as publicised. Large romantic garden with terraced woodland walks. Garden trails, shrubs, roses and water garden. Display of daffodils and over 6,500 tulips planted annually amongst extensive borders. Fine John Carr house (not open) set in splendour of Wensleydale countryside

    The atmosphere of Constable Burton Hall Gardens has evolved over time: from the Elizabethan period, with its more formal concept of sweeping lawns and parterre terraced gardens, to the present day, with its more informal design.

    Within the terraced woodland garden, fine trees have matured over many years. These include a large sweeping Cedar of Lebanon, together with a majestic Deodar Cedar. These canopy trees provide welcome shelter for a wide variety of plants including a fine collection of Acer japonica, Acer palmatum and various forms of magnolia, all of which create colour and scent throughout the season. Ground cover plants that will tolerate heavy shade include hostas and ferns, and Rodgersia podophylla with their large chestnut-like leaves which produce creamy white flowers in summer.

    The Stream Garden and Lily Pond offer another dimension to the garden, with fine examples of architectural and marginal plants. This is an area where large groups of bog arum, bamboo and Gunnera manicata create an impressive show.

Features and Attractions

Constable Burton Hall Gardens plays host to a magnificent Tulip Festival, on the first May Bank Holiday weekend. Sponsored by Chelsea award winning nursery Bloms Bulbs, over 6,500 traditional and new variant tulips are planted throughout the gardens.
