Breezy Knees


Twenty acres they are one of the largest gardens in the North of England and with over 7,000 different varieties of plants to discover, there’s always lots to see, with the extensive borders that form the heart of the gardens giving a succession of flowers all the way through from May to the end of September.

Breezy Knees is a beautiful place to visit and it must be quite a few years since my last visit. It is really worth a visit it is so beautiful.

Complementing these are a series of seasonal highlights, starting in May and June with the tranquillity of the Pond and Shade Garden, special collections of irises and peonies and both the Rock and Shade Gardens, with their mass of early summer blooms.

By mid-summer the annual meadow is at its best, the Cottage Garden brimming with colour and the Rose Garden full of fragrance. Through August the main borders remain a riot of colour and finally, the special September Garden with its late season blooms and the Conifer Garden, with its majestic grasses, will be at their peak as the summer draws to a close.

    1. Aww thank you ❤️
      Yes, up until a few years ago I’d never heard of it and I thought it was a peculiar name but it’s beautiful. Little pockets of different types of gardens all rolled into one! I love it here beautiful there’s no playpark for kids ie no screaming children. It’s on par with gardens such as Beningbrough, Newby Hall and Castle Howard Walled garden. They have introduced some sculptures this year which I will get round to edit lol 😂
