Scampston Hall looks over one of the finest parks in North Yorkshire. The park evolved throughout the 18th Century, culminating in a design by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in 1782. In typical Brown style it incorporates a series of lakes and naturalistic planting of the period. Fine examples of native trees are to be seen, and garden visitors are welcome to walk throughout the 80 acres. Dogs may be taken but must be kept on a lead.
Scampston Park is a perfect venue for a wide range of outdoor events and activities, including agricultural, trade, antique or craft fairs, car and caravan rallies, as well as music concerts. The following key characteristics are why Scampston Park lends itself so well to these sorts of activities:
- Park extends to some 80 acres overall
- Land is very sandy and fast draining meaning minimum disruption due to bad weather
- Excellent access directly off the A64
- Located in the centre of a very busy tourism area during the Spring & Summer months
- Has the stunning backdrop of Scampston Hall
The park is currently home to the annual Malton Agricultural Show
and is available to hire
for other events.
