Lovely manor house with excellent guided tour. Beautifully furnished and presented. Nice atmosphere. Three distinct gardens. Modern, Capability Brown and 'old' pleasure garden. The first two are worth as much time as you have if you have a gardening interest. The garden to the rear...More

We visited both the parkland and the walled garden. The parkland is a delightful Capability Brown landscape with a number of features, including a Palladian bridge, and good signposted walks. The gardens are delightful, well designed, peaceful and well maintained, with many plants named.

Hi Rose, Scampston is still privately owned, and lived in by the family. It is a member of the Historic Houses Association, so HHA members get free entry. Thanks, Izzy
