The beautiful Helmsley Walled Garden is a full five acres of glorious garden at the foot of the imposing ruins of Helmsley Castle. It was built in 1759 and just after WW1 it became derelict, however in 1994 the restoration process began. Since then an incredibly hardworking and dedicated group of volunteers have seen it go from strength to strength. It now exists to support vulnerable adults through horticultural therapy and the wonderful quality plants and produce on sale supports their marvellous charity work. It currently has an impeccably restored glasshouse filled to the brim with colour and life, and a magnificent clematis garden with over 150 varieties on view. Everywhere is alive with bees, butterflies and plenty of birds, as well as floral perfumes wafting on the breeze from various parts of the garden. The grounds are clothed by walls of fruit trees and vegetable plots, providing ingredients for the scrumptious dishes at their very own Vinehouse café.
