Welcome to Kirklinton Hall and Gardens
Kirklinton Hall and Gardens are open for picnics, walks or just a jolly good rest! Come and see us between 12pm and 5pm weekdays and Sundays between 1st April and 30th September 2014. Saturdays are for public and private events. Refreshments are available from the Ticket Office, including tea, coffee, cake, Taste of Eden Ice Cream and soft drinks and biscuits.
Kirklinton Hall is a 17th Century ruin which is being restored by the owners Ilona and Christopher Boyle, to bring it back to its former glory as a self sufficient estate. In the mean time, as it is being rebuilt, they are concentrating on restoring the gardens, including a Faerie Glen, where our little winged guardians of Kirklinton live and watch over us. They also are the protectors of the flourishing Vegetable Garden, Fruit Orchards, Nut Trees and Soft Fruit all planted by the owners and their friends this year. Also the influx of animals will keep them busy – our two pigs The Empress of Kirklinton and Monica Simmons, have already arrived with more animals to follow! Events at Kirklinton Hall are very high on our Faeries’ agenda. They love a good party or festival, so we are hosting Weddings to make their hearts glow, Folk Festivals so they can dance and, most fun of all, Opera so they can be cultured and sophisticated and show off Kirklinton at its very best most wonderful self!
In the meantime why don’t you come and play with the faeries, bring a picnic and a friend or two and see how we are getting along.
