“Lovely gardens”

Sewerby Hall and Gardens
Ranked #2 of 52 things to do in Bridlington
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Unfortunately when we went the hall was closed for refurbishment so only got to see the gardens which were lovely. Had lunch at the cafe which was also very nice and served quickly. Only two negatives - paying £4 admission seemed a bit steep when the house is closed but I accept they still need to maintain the upkeep of the gardens. Also the door which goes from the cafe back to the outdoor seating area (not into the inner courtyard - the other exit) is completely unsuitable for a cafe - heavy and fast closing. How the waiting staff get through it every day without dropping trays is a miracle. I was nervous when just carrying two drinks. Overall though it was a very good place to visit and I'd go back when the hall is open again.

I always enjoy a trip to Sewerby Hall and gardens, although to be fair, the hall is closed for refurbishment until August 9th, so on this occasion it was just the gardens. It's charming here, and money is being spent on improvements all the time, the new toilet block is spotless, and there is a lovely shop selling sweets, ice creams, and hot and cold drinks. You can play bowls, for a small fee, or putting. There is also a mini golf course and football golf too. The zoo is ok, but is looking rather run down.
The gardens are pretty, so all in all, this remains Bridlington's finest asset.

If you're fancying a good walk along the cliff top path, Sewerby Hall is near enough to be walkable from Bridlington, but far enough to be too much for the chips and fags folk so it's nice and quiet. The hall has a large free car park, which makes a pleasant change, and right now the hall itself is closed for refurb so the entrance is discounted (£4), also a pleasant change.

Inside the grounds there's a woodlands walk, a large walled garden, lots of flower beds, and large open spaces to walk around. There's also a putting green, pitch and putt, bowls, and a small zoo. The zoo is mainly for the young ones so there's no lions or anything, but it's a nice walk round. There's a good cafe, but there's also ice creams and coffee served at the bowling green at next to nothing prices - we paid 25p for a choc ice and 45p for one of those Cornetto type cones. There's also a small land train regularly running into Bridlington and back which might be good for the kids.

We stayed about 3 or 4 hours, but I guess with a picnic or maybe a game of something, you could easily stretch to a full day there.

we walked to Sewerby Hall and Gardens on the cliff tops from Bridlington about 13/4 miles according to the signpost although we could have caught the land train. The weather was superb so it was an enjoyable walk. As it was at least 50 years since I was last at Sewerby and my husband had never visited we weren't sure what to expect. The Hall was due to reopen after refurbishment on 8th of August and works were still in progress on the day we were there. This still left the small zoo and gardens to visit with children's playground and miniature golf course. There were plenty of visitors to the tearooms which were reasonably priced and the staff very pleasant . The toilets were spotless. The gardens were quite extensive with secret paths and very mature monkey puzzle trees and a walled garden with a small plant nursery attached to it selling plants as seen in the gardens. The zoo could have done with an update but there were keepers in evidence cleaning out and feeding the animals. A pleasant way to spend a few hours in the sunshine .
