Belsay Hall and Garden
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The Hall is set in stunning gardens, also the creation of Sir Charles Monck. At the heart of the gardens is the Quarry Garden, a romantic ferned area created where stone was quarried for the building of the Hall. The garden was later expanded by Sir Charles's grandson, Arthur, who added a Winter Garden, Yew Garden, and Magnolia Terrace.
A short walk on level paths brings you to Belsay Castle, where you will see not one, but two former residences of the Middleton family. The first is the castle, a 14th century fortification at the heart of which is a pele tower. The pele was later extended with the addition of a 17th century wing to form a mansion more suiting the relatively more settled Jacobean period.
