Welcome

Parcevall Hall Gardens is now fully open for the 2021 season.

After a staggered beginning to the 2021 season due to following Government guidelines regarding  COVID-19 travel restrictions, the Gardens are now fully reopen for visitors.  Unless advised by the Government to do otherwise, we will remain open daily between 10am and 6pm (last admission 4pm) until 31st October.

Please note that when you visit we will have some minor restrictions in place, as both your safety and well being, as well as those of our staff, are of our utmost priority.  On arrival at the Gardens we would ask that you remain in your vehicle until a member of our visitor reception team comes to greet you.  They will be wearing PPE, again for both yours and their protection. During the Coronavirus outbreak we are only accepting card payment for admission, as for hygiene reasons we are unable to accept cash or cheques.

Unfortunately the Tea Room will remain closed throughout 2021, although visitors are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy in the grounds, on the understanding that they tidy up and take all their rubbish home with them.  Public toilet facilities are available and can be found just outside the Rose Garden.  There are two individual toilets, both of which will be cleaned and checked on a regular basis. We respectfully request that during your visit, social distancing guidelines are adhered to throughout the Gardens and in particular in the toilet area.  During what are still difficult times until Covid-19 is finally eradicated, we will endeavour to make each visitor experience an enjoyable one, where the peaceful atmosphere and beauty of the Gardens and surrounds may be enjoyed at their best.  We hope that it won’t be too long before we can welcome everyone back again and look forward to seeing you soon.

Parcevall Hall Gardens are a renowned historic plantsmans garden at the heart of Wharfedale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Located at the head of a small valley, the gardens are a hidden treasure and well worth seeking out. Comprising of 24 acres of formal and woodland gardens they rise up the hillside for 200 feet giving wonderful views in every direction.

The gardens were laid out by the late Sir William Milner from 1927 onwards, and are planted with specimens from around the world, many collected from Western China and the Himalayas.

Within the grounds, visitors will find many facets of the garden, including, woodland walks, formal, south facing terraces, a bedrock limestone rock garden and a beautiful rose garden where it is a pleasure to sit and relax. All set against the stunning back-drop of the Yorkshire Dales.

This is just a flavour of the garden, only a visit will bring it to life.
