About Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery

Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens are traditional cottage gardens, with an emphasis on ensuring that every part of the gardens is as wildlife friendly as possible. More than 40 years have gone into making the gardens what they are today.

Where is Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery located?

The pretty village of Stillingfleet is 6 miles south of York, on the B1222. Signposts to “Lodge Nurseries” lead the way. Bus services between York and Selby stop in Stillingfleet, making it easy to visit the Gardens, and there is an enjoyable cycle route from York.

What style of garden is Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery?

Stillingfleet Lodge is still a family home, and the gardens are very well-loved by the family. Colour-themed cottage gardens surround the house, and there is a double herbaceous border to admire, spanning 60 feet. The woodlands lead down to the pond, and from there to the wildflower meadow. The nursery offers a wide variety of plants for sale, and it is well-known for its shade-loving plants, as well as its hardy geraniums and pulmonaria.

What can guests enjoy at Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery?

The gardens are a delight to wander around, and to sit in and relax. Sculptures, bird feeders and the resident poultry all add interest. Younger children can have fun in the play area, and the annual wildlife day is great fun for the whole family. The tea room serves light refreshments, and also hosts a monthly art exhibition. Gardening workshops and creative courses are held throughout the year.

Inspirations

Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery is part of the following Inspirations:

Ten Gardens to Visit during Summer by Kate Simon

"These delightful cottage gardens have been lovingly nurtured over the past 40 years. Wander about the gorgeous spaces, themed by scent and colour, and take a stroll along The Avenue, a 66ft-long double herbaceous border bursting with trees, shrubs and grasses. Stillingfleet doubles as an inspirational setting for occasional workshops, featuring subjects such as pruning trees and understanding clematis."

The garden is a delight – we really enjoyed it. Loved the planting, the pond and the variety of different coloured foliage. In addition I liked the unobtrusive sculptures and the attractive outbuildings. My son would have taken Donald home


Review of Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery

Posted on by Anon VCustomer visited Jul 2018

We liked: the humour of the “statuary”; the abundance of seats to enjoy quietly the atmosphere; the planting and design and all the wildlife. A peaceful place. Thankyou

Superb gardens with an ethical philosophy – amongst the very best. Providing excellent value for money – better than some stately homes’ gardens. Coffee and cakes very good too! Especially the Colombian coffee!


Review of Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery

Posted on by Linda MCustomer visited May 2017

Excellent – was quite satisfied with my small cottage garden, until I came here and saw all the different varieties of my more common ones. Refreshing to see a ‘real’ garden and not something maintained by an army of gardeners. I love it.


Review of Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery

Posted on by Fiona .Customer visited Apr 2017

I visited for the first time today and what a wonderful visit it was. Everything was delightful – the garden is heavenly, the cafe and cakes delicious and the nursery full of gorgeous abundance, particularly of hardy geraniums, one of my favourite plants. Thank you – I’ll be back!

Just lovely, especially the Guinea Fowl and the Chickens. We came for the gorgeous Geraniums and fell in love with the Hostas

What a gem of a garden! We were so pleased to find you - I particularly liked the sedums - you have inspired me to look at the different species available. A beautiful and tranquil place to be. Really liked the items in the coffee shop.

We have spent a quiet Saturday afternoon in your wonderful garden, tea and cake in the cafe and buying plants from the Nursery. Don't change a thing, small but perfectly formed.

Beautiful gardens and nurseries, an array of rare and unusual plants and flowers. Peaceful and tranquil gardens to walk around and best of all a cafe and gift shop with hand made local crafts and cakes.

This is one of the best gardens I have been to. It is very tranquil and well laid out. Most of the plants and shrubs are labelled. It was a delight to visit.


Review of Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery

Posted on by Patricia CCustomer visited May 2013

I was able to take my friend in her electric buggy :) A great variety of aspects to look at. Short woodland walk, natural pond with seating area, formal water feature enclosed by a beach hedge plus seating, a children's enclosed garden plus many other set out gardens. Unusual plants & trees, packed herbaceous boarders covering every season. There were many places to sit, rest & take in the view & sound of the many birds. If you like chickens... quite a few varieties plus a very talkative goose :) it was a sunny day, so how lovely to be able to purchase an ice cream & be lost in another time & place. Hot drinks plus cake are available on a 'help yourself' service, we took ours & sat outside after paying of course. You can purchase many of the plants from an area to the right as you leave & I found the lady very helpful, she was more than happy to answer people's questions. We also managed to purchase eggs from the chickens we had seen. An added bonus are the tables provided in the car parking area, a field a little further along. We were able to sit for an hour after closing & enjoy the final sounds & scenery of a gloriously pleasant & calming place to visit. :)

Wonderful, inspiring garden, by far the best and most interesting I have ever visited in N.G.S. yellow book. Small compartmental areas, you just wanted to look around every corner!

Attended a bee keeping workshop with my husband. These sessions are offered for individuals or two people so there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get involved. John, Vanessa's husband made the evening extremely interesting, informative and very enjoyable. Highly recommended
