MAY 2018 WALK EVERY DAY FOR A WEEK CHALLENGE – DAY 6
Also known as Sewerby House is a Grade I listed Georgian country house set in 50 acres (20 ha) of landscaped gardens in the village of Sewerby, 2 miles (3.2 km) from the seaside town of Bridlington in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England.
The main block was built circa 1714, incorporating some older work, in 3 storeys in brick with a seven window frontage. In 1808, 2-storey bow fronted wings and a semi-circular Doric portico were added and the whole building painted to resemble stone. The wings were later raised to 3 storeys.
There is a cafe and a nautical-themed playground. Check their website for more information and their events.
You can wonder amongs its beautiful gardens including the Walled Gardens, Rose Gardens, Pleasure Gardens, Worklink Nursery, Woodland and picnic areas.
The elegant symmetry of the formal gardens and the magnificent Monkey Puzzle trees, reputed to be amongst the oldest in England.
The Zoo is home to a wide range over 60 mammals and birds including parrots, Humboldt penguins splashing and swimming in their enclosure or the cute Racoon Dogs.
You can get to Sewerby Hall by Land train from Bridlington promenade which we did and our son enjoyed it.
