Scampston Estate, UK

I visited Scampston on 22 September 2012. Scampston Estate is in North Yorkshire, approximately 5 miles from Malton, on the north side of the A64 Leeds/Scarborough road. It is about 23 miles to the north east of York. The main draw is the Walled Garden designed by Pete Oudolf and first opened to the public in 2004. Visitors are also able to walk through the grounds around Scampston Hall.

This is an aerial view of Scampston Hall, its park and walled garden from Google Earth.

The gardens were open from 6 April to 28 October 2012, every day except Monday, from 10 am to 4 pm. Visitors can purchase a ticket for the walled garden (6.00 GBP), the Cascde Circuit and Grounds (3.00 GBP) or a combined ticket for both (8.00 GBP). These prices represent excellent value for money. There is also a restaurant serving snacks and lunches.
