Looking forward to getting out and about this summer? You’re not alone. The team at North Stainley’s Staveley Arms and Old Coach House have selected some of the best North Yorkshire gardening events this season.
See the sights, smell the roses and feast on Yorkshire food with these unmissable summer events.
Flower Power Plant Fair Coverham Abbey
This summer garden event feels particularly special as it’s located in a private garden which is not usually open to the public. Not only can you take in the marvels of these stunning herbaceous borders; you can eat and drink Yorkshire too. The venue serves tempting Yorkshire treats – ideal for snacking on as you wander around the meadows.
Wind in the Willows RHS Harlow Carr
Enjoy a little outdoor theatre in the heart of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Harlow Carr in Harrogate. The Pantaloons Theatre Company is bringing this Kenneth Grahame classic to life in a live adaptation of the Wind in the Willows. You can catch Mole, Ratty, Toad and Badger as they make their merry way around the gardens on Saturday 14th August.
Flower Power Plant Fair Newburgh Priory
The sprawling gardens of Newburgh Priory offer the perfect backdrop for the Flower Power Plant Fair on Monday 30th August. With 40 acres of scenery and a diverse plant fair to boot, this is ideal for both horticultural fanatics and history lovers.
Harrogate Flower Show
Just 8 miles from North Stainley lies Newby Hall, which will play host to the Harrogate Flower Show from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th September. Feast your eyes on giant vegetables and indulge in a little local produce – before delighting in some light retail therapy with the on-site plant market.
This year’s show also features a new exhibit – a floral art show! A wander around the stunning Newby Hall gardens also comes as part of the price, so make the most of this event.
Find some R&R at your local B&B
After a hard day’s walking, shopping and sampling local plant life, you can kick back in style at the Staveley Arms. Enjoy mouth-watering produce in our traditional English pub, or if you’re staying for the night, be sure to book in at the 18th Century Old Coach House.
The flowers are in bloom and we’re back open for summer. We can’t wait to welcome you.
