Top 100 Attractions Review

The gardens here at Yewbarrow House took me completely by surprise and when it comes to hidden gems, Yewbarrow well and truly deserve their Top 100 Attractions 'Garden & Parklands' gem. Their owner, Jonathan Bemby, a well respected hotelier in the area, along with his gardener, is responsible for the gardens design and the views over the estuary are truly wonderful. I don't think that Jonathan ever imagined that his garden would draw such popularity as he very humbly guided me around the garden. From simple, easy care plants to some rare species, as you make your way up to the gardens highest view point, the views are just breath taking, even better on a sunny day! 119 All in all, the gardens here do not disappoint and as this is a private home, it is always best to call ahead before turning up to this garden, to avoid disappointment.

Yewbarrow House Gardens

Many thanks to all those who attended our open days in 2017, we were very pleased to have so many visitors. We are delighted to have raised £6,288.50 last year for NGS charities bringing our total raised over the past 16 years to £77,390 - a wonderful achievement. 2018 Open Days We are looking forward to another successful year with our first open day on Sunday 3rd June. Sunday 1st July promises to be a really special occasion when we invite our friends from Growing Well to provide catering and celebrate Artists’ Day in the gardens - keep an eye out for more information nearer the time. We will be open for the NGS on the first Sunday of the month, June to September, and we also welcome groups of ten or more on other days, by appointment, for which we charge £5 a head. Margaret will be pleased to serve tea and coffee with biscuits in the morning (£3 a head) or cream teas in the afternoon (£5 a head).
