Sewerby Hall & Gardens
Sewerby Hall is a grade one listed Georgian Hall which has recently been restored to a stately home in 1910. The Hall is set in a cliff top position in 50 acres of grounds, within the grounds is a zoo, woodland walks, children's adventure playground, walled garden, sensory garden and various sports, such as putting and bowls.
The house's restoration in 2013 has allowed several new areas to be open the public. Much of the period furniture has been provided by the Victoria and Albert Museum. Rooms which have been opened include an Edwardian nursery with period toys and games, and a restored working kitchen with a coal-fired range. The hall also features new interactive experiences for visitors, including ‘My Sewerby’, a brand new memory wall which will be looking for contributions from visitors to the hall, and A Servant’s Life.
The grounds of Sewerby Hall can provide a day out in themsleves, with over 50 acres to be explored. There are four garden areas: The rose garden has a formal design, with planting beds bordered by box hedging; the walled garden a delightful array of flowers and shrubs neatly framed by close-cropped box hedgerows; the pleasure garden contains Sewerby’s superb collection of magnificent Monkey Puzzle trees and the woodland garden contains a wide variety of tree species. Look out for sycamore, horse chestnut and elm amongst others.
Sewerby Hall also has it's own zoo, where you can meet a wealth of domestic and wild animals from various countries such as pygmy goats from Africa and llamas from South America.
