Newby Hall

Newby Hall is a grade I listed, 18th century country house beside the River Ure in North Yorkshire. The hall contains a collection of furniture, paintings and precious artefacts.

Most of the gardens were created in the 1920s and include the herbaceous border, rose and rock gardens. My favourite was the autumn garden, a walled garden comprising of recognisable hydrangeas and dahlias among other seasonal flowers. It is built on the site of an old croquet lawn with the wall only being added in the 1990s.

The herbaceous border leading up to the house is one of the longest in the country. I rescued a bee who was sat on the floor and put him back on one of the border’s many flowers. I also enjoyed walking round the rock garden which includes a little waterfall.

I don’t have any photos from inside the house as I’m never sure if you’re allowed to take pictures, so you’ll have to have a look for yourself! In these types of buildings, my favourite room is usually the library and this one didn’t disappoint with its lovely blue decorated ceiling.
