A lovely calm garden

Ever changing throughout the seasons. A must for garden lovers. The grasses in the autumn away beautifully in the breeze.

We deliberately left it late in the year(2016) to attend here as we wanted to see plants that would display varying colours to help us decide how best to plant out our garden in 2017,from that point of view it was a god send,lovely place to spend time then enjoy a lovely coffee and slice of cake.Took loads of pictures...

I visited this garden using an online voucher bought earlier in the year and about to expire. We enjoyed the visit in spite of being late in the season and there being little colour left in the garden, the grounds of the hall were lovely and the walled garden still had some elements to be enjoyed. The classroom areas were... More

Visited on an October day with mixed weather but enjoyed the experience nevertheless. Entrance fee not cheap and no reduced rate for senior concessions (which would be nice) or for the time of year - one of the parkland walks was closed and the gardens are not at their best. The exterior of the Hall itself is not one of... More

Isobel P, Manager at Scampston Walled Garden, responded to this review

Hello Greecophile, Thank you very much for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit, despite the weather being a little temperamental! We don't offer concessions rates as we run a number of discounted ticket options with other organisations. RHS members gain free entry in October and on Fridays throughout the year, and HHA members are free throughout the season.... More

Visited for ryedale residents weekend, which meant free entry. Found the staff polite and the grounds - especially the planting- well kept and labels up to date and sited close by the relevant plants, which greatly helped us novice gardeners! We found everything on offer very interesting. We did not intend to buy plants /lunch ( too early) but enjoyed... More

Visited on a lovely sunny October day. I came to see the start of the autumn colours and was not disappointed leaves just beginning to turn and autumn bulbs flowering the summer plants had now finished but this is what I expected. Loved the walk in the garden and the stroll around the parkland. Visited the conservatory to see the... More

Visited today on a lovely autumn day. Large car park. Short walk to the ticket booth where a friendly helpful lady gave us our tickets and map of the gardens with tips what to look out for. The gardens are stunning at the moment and the autumn colours a wonderful sight. We sat in the gardens in the sunshine and... More

My wife and I are members of The Historic House Association so we got into Scampston free of charge. Called in on our way home, and never having been here before, weren't sure what to expect. The walled garden is not huge, and I suppose it depends on the time of year as to what you will see. All of... More
