Details

Situated in a dramatic cliff-top position with spectacular views over Bridlington and set in 50 acres of early 19th Century parkland, Sewerby Hall and Gardens offers something for everyone from the magnificent award-winning gardens to the deep rooted heritage of the grand hall.

Visitors can now experience the house as it would have looked in 1910. Using furniture from the Victoria and Albert Museum the house has been amazingly transformed. The restored servant's wing includes a working kitchen, the butler’s pantry and the housekeeper's parlour. Step back in history and relive times when the house shone in all its glory.

Sewerby Hall has over 50 acres of award-winning (Yorkshire in Bloom Gold: 2008-11) landscaped gardens containing numerous woodland walks, comfortable benches, a huge variety of wildlife and secluded sun-traps as well as the Marie Curie Daffodil Trail throughout spring.

The elegant symmetry of the formal gardens and the magnificent Monkey Puzzle trees, reputed to be amongst the oldest in England, are a must-see.

Each garden offers its own variety of sights, smells and sounds throughout each of the four seasons.

Be introduced to an exciting world of mammals and birds at Sewerby Zoo. Come and meet a wealth of domestic and wild animals from various countries such as pygmy goats from Africa and llamas from South America.

Our newest additions, four ring-tailed lemurs can often be found sunbathing in their fabulous new enclosure.

Firm favourites are our Humboldt penguins who are fed every day at 3pm.

Golf, putting and FootGolf: For golf-lovers there is a 9-hole pitch and putt golf course, 18-hole putting green, FootGolf and Crown Green Bowling.

The courtyard is home to the Clock Tower Cafe, Stables Gift Shop, the Welcome Centre and Beeford Bee Products.
