The Gardens

This stately, picturesque Monk Fryston Hall, is covered in wisteria and rambling roses, and has perhaps one of the most enviable settings – 30 acres of ornate gardens, lakes romantic and mature parkland with most of the 29 bedrooms enjoying garden views.

You can enjoy a gentle game of croquet in the apple orchard, jog around the lakes and woodland or take a romantic stroll through the gardens.

A must see is the replica grade 11 listed bridge, a folly of the famous bridge in Lucerne, which is decorated with paintings and excerpts from the “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” painted by Mary Hemsworth.

Today there is still much wildlife to view including our own geese, ducks and peacocks. In 2014 several Otter sightings were recorded.

Our grounds and gardens have something to offer everyone from the leisure guest to wild life photographer, historian to bridal couples.

When visiting Monk Fryston Hall we recommend bringing walking shoes to explore our woodland waterways and lake which meanders through the woodland.
