Winner of Yorkshire in Bloom Tourist Attractions Award 2018, the park is home to over 70 Contemporary Sculptures set within 45 acres, inspired by the Himalayas. The landscape comprises of a beautiful valley with scenic woodland walks, enhanced by three lakes, a pagoda, summerhouse, Himalayan shelter, contemplation circle and Norse Hut.
Widely considered to have the North’s largest collection of rhododendrons, azaleas and magnolias, there are nearly 20,000 plants including some 1,400 rhododendron varieties, 250 azalea varieties and 150 different magnolias and a 20-acre arboretum.
The sculptures are enhanced by their dramatic Himalayan setting, framed by flamboyant burst of colours provided by the rare rhododendrons, azaleas and magnolias. Not forgetting the mass plantings of glorious hybrids and drifts of spring bulbs, providing additional seasonal interest.
An exciting primula meadow enriches the stunning lakeside walks which rise spectacularly from the valley up to the house situated 850 ft above sea level.
