Constable Burton Hall and gardens lie between Leyburn and Bedale in North Yorkshire. We have driven past the relatively insignificant entrance on a number of occasions, but on our way home from the Lake District last week we took a spur of the moment to drop in for a look.

What a treat faced us - parking on the circular dive in front of the imposing Hall, an honesty box for payment, a meandering path through parts of the garden, bumping into one of the family and chatting about the garden (all is privately owned by the landed Wyvill family with history in Yorkshire going back to the 12th century, and being associated with this location since 1611). Their website is well worth a visit to get a feel for the place.

I liked the carefully constructed mix of formality and rambling, overflowing borders. This image shows both components.

Formal garden design with a very English look.

Looks a lovely garden brimming with flowers.
love the 'spruce'? tree which adds to the composition.
