Thinking of visiting Scampston during Autumn? Here's why late September and October are great times to plan a visit...

Scampston Walled Garden, designed by pioneering Dutch plantsman Piet Oudolf, embraces the natural seasonality of the garden. As summer blooms fade, plants have been chosen at Scampston for their shape and texture. Stripped bare, stalks, stems and seed pods become architectural elements in the garden. At this time in the season, the swathes of golden grasses are at their element, and dance lightly in the autumnal breeze.

Across Scampston’s ‘Capability’ Brown parkland, the changing hues of deep auburn and gold are quite a spectacle. The landscape has been crafted to offer glorious views across the park and lakes, out to the Wolds on the horizon, and offers a fabulous autumnal walk.

With delicious and warming options available in the Garden Café – an October outing to Scampston shapes up to be the perfect autumnal day!

Remember, if you're a Ryedale resident you will receive free entry to the gardens and grounds on 8th and 9th October ??
