Recently I had a lovely day out in Wharfedale (Yorkshire) at Parcevall Hall Gardens. The sky was mostly blue if a little cloudy and the sun, when it peeked through the clouds, was warm on my face. Don’t worry my friends, I had Korres SPF30 sunscreen with yoghurt on so I could enjoy the spring sunshine to the full!
From the website: “Parcevall Hall Gardens are a renowned historic plantsmans garden located at the heart of Wharfedale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Located at the head of a small valley, the gardens are a hidden treasure and well worth seeking out. Comprising of 24 acres of formal and woodland gardens they rise up the hillside for 200 feet giving wonderful views in every direction. The gardens were laid out by the late Sir William Milner from 1927 onwards, and are planted with specimens from around the world, many collected from Western China and the Himalayas. Within the grounds, visitors will find many facets of the garden, including, woodland walks, formal, south facing terraces, a bedrock limestone rock garden and a beautiful rose garden where it is a pleasure to sit and relax. All set against the stunning back-drop of the Yorkshire Dales.”
So without further ado, let’s have a look at the photos I took!
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of a tiny corner of the Yorkshire Dales.
