Burnby Hall Gardens are situated in the charming market town of Pocklington, on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds. These iconic Yorkshire Gardens have been described as "a jewel in Yorkshire’s Crown” and have been awarded the prestigious Yorkshire in Bloom Gold Award for five consecutive years (2010-2014).
The Upper and Lower Lakes are home to a National Collection of over 100 varieties of Hardy Water Lily, and offer a wonderful array of changing vistas. The Gardens also include a Rockery, Stumpery, a Victorian Garden, Secret Garden, formal beds and natural shrubbery.
Burnby Hall Gardens are often referred to as "a haven of beauty and tranquillity” and were the inspiration of Major Percy Marlborough Stewart. He was an amazing man who made eight round the world tours between 1906 and 1926. The Stewart Museum within the Gardens is dedicated to his extraordinary life and contains the fascinating artefacts he brought back to Pocklington.
The Lilypad Cafe offers a wide range of refreshments and there is a beautiful Gift shop.
Unfortunately Bigger Bertie, the rocking horse, has gone away for maintenance and will be back with us as soon as possible.
