2017 was the first year we wentto Coverham Abbey and what a wonderful day it turned out to be. Huge numbers of visitors, gardeners, neighbours and people just passing by on the day were enchanted by this delightful private garden, not normally open to the public. Wandering through the old abbey ruins with the knot garden or along the herbaceous borders on the south front brought forth lots of wonderful comments for the owners.
The plant fair is held on the meadow across the HaHa on part of the old abbey ruins – hence the slightly unlevel ground in places – and features many of the top Northern plant nurseries.
Home made delights are available all day in the Barn and they definitely have the smartest toilets in Yorkshire! A tribute to Yorkshireman, Mr Thomas Crapper.
