Sewerby Hall is situated just outside of Bridlington in the East Riding of Yorkshire. It is a Grade I listed Georgian country house set within 50 acres of beautiful gardens. There is also a little zoo with lots of different animals to see. Positioned on the cliff top, there are spectacular views over Bridlington and the seafront. There’s something for everyone if you visit Sewerby Hall and Gardens.
The Georgian core of the house was built between 1714 and 1720 by John Greame, and later additions added in 1808, 1830s, 40s, and 90s. Sewerby Hall went under a complete restoration in 2014, refurbished and styled as it would have looked in 1910. The interior has beautiful, detailed pieces from the Victoria and Albert museum, among other impressionable collections. Each room takes you back in history, teaching you all about how each room was used by the owners during the time period.
Not only can you learn all about the history of Sewerby Hall, but there is also a permanent exhibition about Amy Johnson, her aviation journey and her stories.
This was definitely my favourite part when visiting Sewerby Hall. You can visit in every season, and entry in the winter months is FREE too. The walled gardens are filled with lots of different flowers and plants. It’s lovely seeing nature takes its course as we pass through the different season, and seeing all the different seasonal colours. There is also a little woodland trail too.
The zoo homes a fascinating collection of animals and birds – domestic and wild ones. Furry friends include micro-pigs, Sika deer, raccoon dogs, degus, llamas and my favourite; pygmy goats. There is also an opportunity to adopt your favourite animal for £20 a year. They are also committed to learning and conservation, with lots to educate yourself on about these animals during your visit.
Sewerby Hall hosts lots of events throughout the year. This includes historical re-enactments, magic days, vehicle rallies, interactive walks, sports, wildlife activities and music concerts. Keep an eye on there website to look for any upcoming events.
