The Walled Garden was a working cattle-yard until 1987, though now it is the very essence of an English Rose Garden.

Old fashioned roses including "Gardenia", "Souvenir du Docteur Jamain" and "New Dawn” clamber over the enclosing walls and trellis, providing an overwhelming scent when in flower. 

Further shrub roses act as a backdrop to herbaceous plants such as geranium, thalictrum salvia, and astrantia.

Grape vines, figs, oranges and lemons are grown in the south facing conservatory, bringing the heady scents of the Mediterranean to Yorkshire. A large collection of scented pelargoniums also flourish in this protected environment.
