Goddard's House and Gardens, York

It was raining when we visited York a couple of weeks back to look round Goddard’s house and garden. Goddard’s is a grade 1 listed arts and crafts house in York, now owned by the National Trust who acquired the house in 1984, however it wasn’t opened to the public until 2012.  It was built in 1927 for the Terry family of the famed chocolate manufacturing family, Terry’s.

The garden spans 4 acres and includes a tennis court and croquet lawn. Beyond the gardens, you can see York racecourse.  As it was pouring down when we were there, we were the only ones out in the garden so we got the whole place to ourselves.  My favourite part was the rock garden in the pictures below.
