Welcome to Scampston

My family and I hope you have a wonderful time and enjoy exploring the Walled Garden here at Scampston, as well as learning about the history of the Hall and Parkland.

Our award-winning Walled Garden is a stunningly beautiful, contemporary garden, quite unlike any other. Designed by the much admired Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf, it is well worth a visit!

Scampston Hall is one of the finest regency country houses in North Yorkshire, and contains many fine works of art, furniture and porcelain. But above all it is our family home and we are delighted to share it with you through guided tours in the summer months or as the perfect wedding venue for your big day.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
