Jackson’s Wold Garden

Places to Visit, Things to Do

A short drive away (about 9 miles and 30 minutes down country lanes) from our cottages and  just up on the edge of the rolling Yorkshire Wolds is this beautiful private garden with views across the Vale of Pickering. The gardens are only open on Tuesday’s and the occasional Sunday’s throughout the year. Jackson’s Wold Garden is a true labour of love for the owners and worth setting aside the time to visit.

For more information, including directions and opening times, please visit their website.
