A wonderful estate to visit at any time of the year but late summer offers you beautiful views, a peaceful lake alive with lots of wild fowl, woodland and water gardens and a short sharp hike up to the top of the hill to look back down onto the Priory and Sutton Bank beyond. With over 40 acres of gardens and grounds to explore, you know it will be a great day out for all, including your dog.
The fair takes place on the North lawns looking down to the lake and the White Horse at Kilburn beyond and is always popular with the individual plant nurseries and specialists who attend.
As always there will be some of the very best specialist nurseries attending the fair including Through The Garden Gate, Ribbesdale Nurseries, Dark Star Plants, Northern Ark Nursery, The Quiet Corner, Fayrefield Horticulture & Design, Roanne Nurseries, Alchemy Plants, Gatekeeper Nursery, Garden Blooms and Plantazia. We also welcome the wonderful Jane from Brambling House Alpines and Salvias who will also be bringing along choice spring bulbs for you too. And we shall have garden accessories too including Gardening with Wildlife and Alfresco.
We are trying so hard to stop the use of plastic and most of the nurseries now have bio-degradable bags to offer you but please bring your own bags along too – it all helps. And although the nurseries are now embracing modern technology with card payments, not all of them do, so don’t forget to bring CASH with you to avoid disappointment.
Home made yummy cakes and lovely sandwiches and hot quiches will be on sale throughout the day in the Priory Refectory Kitchen and for those of you who haven’t visited the Priory before, may I suggest a visit to the House too. Fascinating history and a delightful home.
