The Double Border

The Double Border


One of the largest gardens in the North of England with 20 acres bursting with colour throughout summer from over 6,000 different varieties of flowers, shrubs and trees. Features to be discovered in these beautiful gardens include extensive herbaceous borders, fountains, rose and cottage gardens, an annual meadow and special June and September gardens plus much more.

Also don't miss the adjoining specialist nursery with many rare plants, lots of recent introductions and definitely loads your neighbours won't have and everything for sale can be seen growing in the gardens, having been tested by whatever the Yorkshire weather has thrown at them.
