Burton Agnes, East Yorkshire



Simon Jenkins, author of England’s Thousand Best Houses, described Burton Agnes Hall as ‘the perfect English house’ and as one of the twenty best English houses alongside Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace and Chatsworth House.   http://www.burtonagnes.com/Home.html

If you were ever unsure how to handle yew hedging here is your answer!  The gardens are really lovely and there is a section within the walled garden where there are 4 or 5 different coloured gardens – the colour combinations are fabulous http://www.carolinegarland.com/2014/05/clever-colour-combis-spot-the-tulip/

However I visited this garden jusr the other day, mid May, and I am told that a  revisit is ESSENTIAL in June for the roses which are everywhere… but it is a visit to East Yorkshire… I don’t know if I’ll make it sadly
