The garden dates back to the same period as the house, built around 1759. It is under a slow process of regeneration, containing a small orchard of heritage varieties of apple, a fruit garden developed with the help of NFG (Northern Fruit Group), a demonstration beehive through the Harrogate & Ripon Beekeeping Association and a limited area of organic vegetable production is under the management of the head gardener.
Series of four walled gardens with Heritage fruit and vegetable collections, glasshouses designed by Paxton, pineapple pit growing pineapples, frame yard, melon ground, peach house, citrus house, bee boles & back sheds, which have been enthusiastically restored to 19th century productiveness.
Set against the backdrop of Helmsley Castle, the 5 acre garden, originally built in 1756, has benefited from 15 years of restoration. The garden is a registered charity providing horticultural therapy to the local community. The garden has a range of areas, including organic vegetable and fruit.
