Step into the 17th Century at Whalton Manor Gardens. Located in north-eastern England, this country house began as numerous houses before becoming joined together and extended at various stages.

Maintained by the Norton family since the 1920’s, the gardens surrounding the manor are of an exceptionally high standard awash with a spectacular range of colours and scents that shift as you stroll through the various gardens.

The longest manor house in England, Whalton Manor was first modified by Sir Robert Lorimer in the late 19th century when he converted the row of cottages into Old Whalton Manor. The manor was then joined later on to Whalton Mansion by Sir Edward Lutyens, creating the country house we see today.

Visitors to this picturesque escape will be able to view numerous plots from the courtyard to the Laburnam Grove, which is absolutely magical in summer. There are also grand summer houses where visitors can sit and enjoy the beautiful architecture of Sir Lutyens and is an ideal location for anyone with a passion for gardening or just for nature at its very best.

If you find that you have fallen in love with Whalton Manor then you can stay in one of their 18th century rooms and take some time to visit the nearby Druridge Bay!
