Sewerby Hall & Gardens | Sewerby
Sewerby Hall is situated 2 miles north of the seaside resort of Bridlington, on the East Yorkshire coast. The grade I listed country house is set in 50 acres of landscaped gardens in a cliff top location on the outskirts of Sewerby village. The house was built 1714-1720 by John Greame. Bow wings and a portico were added in 1808-1811. Later additions include an Orangery and dining room.
The lovely gardens of Sewerby extend some 50 acres and offer magnificent views over Bridlington bay, from Flamborough headland to the north-east, down to Spurn Point looking south. One of the most famous popular features of Sewerby is the justly famous 'Old English Garden' where the seasonal changes of colourful blooms against the time-weathered brickwork will reward the visitor at any time of year.
The gardens are a skilful blend of art and nature, with formal walks, terraces and contrasting woodland. The magnificent monkey puzzle trees of the pleasure gardens are reputed to be amongst the oldest in England, and there are many more fine specimen trees over 200 years old.
