This is such a treat of a place, great for old and young alike. It’s an hour not a day but lots to see and discover. Thanks to whoever looks after it. Amazing what you find on a walk.

Well worth stopping, if you are in the area. As you are traveling on the road from/to Hawes/Leyburn, through Aysgarth is this lovely Little Rock garden, has a history, is well kept and has something new to offer, depending on the time of year! Enjoy.
