Encircled by parkland, with riverside and forest walks on all sides, the sight of the hall as you turn to the long drive paints a picture of an interesting past. By the rich teenager who inherited it to the hall's use as a RAF seat, Beningbrough has been influenced by the people who have lived here for more than 300 years.
What style of garden is Beningbrough Hall, Gallery & Gardens?
The formal garden was set out in 1716, but was later replaced by large shimmering lawns and specimen trees. Some big replanting has taken place a little more recently, and two private gardens and a protected area are now taking advantage. When the season is perfect, walking through the walled garden and the main border means brushing past some 5,000 lavender plants and an array of flowers, fruits and vegetables.
