A showcase of delicate artistry, The Gardens are the epitome of beauty, with vivid flowerbeds, over 3,000 stunning roses, from floribundas and climbing roses to the statement English rose , and a careful selection of shrubs and trees, highlighted with graceful water features and meandering paths.
The Gardens have been intricately designed and created by multi RHS award-winning landscape architect Alistair Baldwin, along with rose expert Michael Marriott from David Austin Roses and Wynyard Hall’s own dedicated team of gardeners.
In company with the roses, visitors will also discover a careful selection of flowers, shrubs, and trees highlighted with graceful water features. The surrounding gardens have continued to evolve since the first development in 1822. For centuries to follow, they have provided a magical setting for Wynyard Hall.
Current developments began with the dreams that Sir John Hall had for improving the Wynyard Hall Estate, and today we take immense pride in having worked to make these dreams a reality for you to enjoy.
From the moment they were first developed in 1822, The Gardens have offered a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. They were originally created by William Sawrey Gilpin who crafted gently curved flowerbeds, raised terrace walks, irregularly shaped shrubberies, and winding paths to form beautiful shapes within the landscape.
The layout takes inspiration from the historic evolution of the walled garden, from the strict geometric order of Persian grids, through the raised beds of the traditional English kitchen garden, to the babbling rills of the Moorish gardens of paradise.
