We visited Burton Agnes Hall on a July Saturday morning and early afternoon having arrived in the area hours before we were due access to our holiday accommodation.
For such a fabulously warm and sunny day we were surprised at how quiet this wonderful stately home and it's beautiful gardens were. But that was to our advantage as we enjoyed a pleasant, tranquil visit!
We decided not to tour the house (I regret that now) but wandered the gardens and explored the woodland walk ( cool and shady). The walled garden was a delight - a kaleidoscope of colour and fantastic scents. We found a seat in shade to sit and enjoy.
There is a courtyard cafe, gift shops and a farm/garden shop. Plus delicious ice cream from an old-fashioned ice-cream van.
Would visit again and next time have a nosy around inside!
