The Tearoom

Our Tearoom serves a range of teas, coffees and cold drinks as well as a variety of food options. From snacks and freshly prepared sandwiches, to warm lunches and a delicious selection of cakes and tray bakes. We have vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options and try to accommodate all dietary requests.

The playground

Our woodland playground provides great entertainment for the children, with climbing, monkey bars, swings and a spinning roundabout. Located next to our tea room it is a great spot for children to play while parents enjoy some refreshments.

https://www.countryfile.com/awards The gardens featured on BBC Countryfile’s autumn special last year. The Countryfile TV producers and film crew spent an afternoon at the gardens, so they have experienced the unique and beautiful attraction first-hand and complimented our team of talented gardeners, who have worked hard to make it a go-to destination. Winners of the Yorkshire in Bloom Tourist Attraction Award in 2018 and 2019 and Best Business Award 2019, judges have described the Himalayan Garden and Sculpture Park “a truly beautiful and amazing place.” The Park (located in Grewelthorpe near Ripon) has had limited seasonal opening times in the past but, due to public demand, 2020 will see the gardens open from 10 April until 1 November.

What's on

Dog Walking

We welcome well-behaved dogs but, ask that they are kept on a lead at all times. Owners are expected to clean up after their dogs and ensure that they do not cause a nuisance to other visitors.

Garden History

Peter and Caroline Roberts originally bought the property in 1996, as a privately owned 20 acre woodland garden, which has now been extended to 45 acres. Some of the grounds were coppiced Hazel woodland with an infestation of Japanese Knotweed, whilst other parts of the site were dense, dark woods of Sitka Spruce.

“We started the garden because the acid soil, abundance of springs and microclimate is ideal for growing Himalayan plants. The planting enhances our large, internationally recognised art collection and we add more features every year.”
