Cascade Circuit & Traditional Gardens
Scampston Hall has its own traditional style gardens, separate from the Walled Garden where you will find a box parterre, herbaceous borders, a 19th century Rock Garden and the Woodland Garden.
The Rock Garden was completely overgrown when Sir Charles and Lady Legard moved to Scampston. Nowadays it is once again in need of restoration but is still home to a collection of alpines and orchids and looks at its best in the spring.
The Woodland Garden set alongside the Lower Lake contains many fine trees and other woodland plants. In spring the lake is full of tadpoles and later in the summer toads and dragonflies abound.
Our Cascade Circuit Walk is a self-guided walk, about a mile in length, which leads you to various points of interest in the gardens and lakeside. See the Palladian Bridge, the old Ice House and the Cascade along the way. Seasonal activity sheets for children are available for the walk and there is also a natural play area suitable for younger children.
