Our Review

As part of the #5CChallenge, we're visiting ten famous English Gardens, and one of these is Burton Agnes Hall, 2005 Garden of the Year Winner.

Burton Agnes Hall is in Yorkshire and is an impressive Elizabethan manor that still has its older Norman manor too.

Burton Agnes Hall

Unlike some other country estates, we didn't find Burton Agnes Hall too large. Instead, it was small enough to explore and provided plenty of variety.

When we visited there was an excellent and engaging children's trail to follow in the grounds, the walled garden, the woodland walk, and the hall itself.

If you want to transport your kids back to the time of knights, visit the old Normal Manor house. From the outside, it looks like part of the Elizabethan hall, but inside it tells a very different story.

There's also a treadmill that was used to get water out of a very deep well.

The more 'modern' Elizabethan hall was built in the 1500s. The kid's trail for the Hall certainly keeps them engaged.

As well as lots of history, the Hall contains some new artwork and sculptures, as well as a more modern 'Reading Room'.

The main grounds around the Hall contains items for the kids to find.

As with the house, there is a mix of old and new.

There's also plenty of places to take a picnic on the lawn and for the kids to run around.

Just off the grounds of the Hall you can either take the Woodland Walk or visit the Walled Garden.

The Walled Garden is very impressive and is just bursting with colour. It's not only flowers grown here but also veg too - though it doesn't look like your normal veg patch!

Butterfly in Gardens

There are lots of little gardens to explore, some with different colour themes. In these small gardens, you can find giant games, such as giant chess or a giant snakes and ladders game, which was popular.

Even if your kids aren't interested in gardens, the trail and exploring the different 'garden rooms' should keep them busy.

The Woodland Walk contains sculptures hidden in the trees for the kids to find. Watch out for the giant spider!


Burton Agnes Hall has a cafe, which was very popular. When you look at the menu, the prices appear quite expensive. However, a 'sandwich' is not just that, as it does come with salad and crisps.

We really enjoyed our day out at Burton Agnes Hall.
