Kirkby Malzeard Hidden Gardens

Please note
This event rested in 2017 so we don't have any recent event details. When we get updated information, we'll add it here, but in the meantime we include below event information from a previous year to remind you about the event.

 approx 10 gardens opened Kirkby Malzeard, near Ripon, North Yorkshire
Sunday 3rd July 2016
1.00pm to 5.00pm (Waterford House from 12.00noon)

The ancient village of Kirkby Malzeard is mentioned in the Domesday Book and stands almost equidistant from Ripon and Masham.

We are opening our village gardens and Waterford House garden (just outside the village) for the first time and hope to provide a fun family day out as well as plenty of interest for keen gardeners.

We have a good variety of gardens including cottage, shaded, large formal and courtyard and the village pottery will also be open (Geoffrey Smith had a hand in laying out this garden which includes a rare Dawn Redwood).

There will be a chance to play croquet and bowls, a 'fairy garden' a treasure hunt, homemade ice cream and afternoon teas.

Waterford House has been developed from an acre of pastureland over the last 17 years, with a stream, stone walls, bridges, a pond and large variety of trees and shrubs. The garden features a selection of antique stone structures including a collection of staddle stones which originate from the 16th Century. This property stands outside the main village (HG4 3RJ) and parking for this garden only is available at the house.

All proceeds to St Andrew's Church and Marie Curie.

Plant sales:
Plant sales at Yew Tree Barn.

5.00 includes admission to Waterford House gardens, accompanied under 16s free.

How to get event passports:
Buy tickets on the day from Waterford House, The Market Cross or Yew Tree Barn.
