Our Garden Open Days are detailed below…

The National Garden Scheme Individual Garden Opening at Yorke House

Sadly our garden at Yorke House will not open in 2020 due to Covid 19, but will be open again for visitors in 2021.

We look forward to welcoming friends and visitors to our Open Garden events for the National Garden Scheme in June and July 2021.

Originally designed as a flower arranger’s garden, it is full of colour-themed borders, stream and ponds with stunning waterside plantings of candelabra primula and iris. In June and July the garden is filled with the fragrance of fabulous rambling roses and fragrant plants.

Our new garden at White Rose Cottage has been designed specifically for gardeners requiring wheelchair access. It will also be open for visitors to sit and enjoy the lovely views.

Dacre Banks and Summerbridge NGS Group Garden Opening

Gardens open are: 

Low Hall, Riverside House, Woodlands Cottage,  Yorke House and White Rose Cottage

Sadly our group opening will not take place this year due to coronavirus

Our very popular group opening will once again be open for the National Gardens Scheme in July 2021 and all the owners welcome back our many friends and new visitors. We celebrate our 20th anniversary of opening for NGS,  and each year our gardens become more attractive as they mature. 

Visit five beautiful country gardens, each with its own unique style, linked by attractive short walks along the Nidderdale valley.

Private Visits

Garden Clubs, Flower Clubs and other groups may arrange private day or evening visits during June and July 2021 by appointment, but we do require a minimum of 10 people in the group.
