Visit the gardens of the former home of the Terry family, part of York’s chocolate heritage and now cared for by the National Trust.

The Gardens

Discover the five-acre garden with herbaceous borders, fragrant garden and sunny terrace overlooking the lawns and formal pond. With a rock garden and wildlife pond, glasshouse, and small kitchen garden, it’s not hard to imagine building a home here for a growing family.

The factory clock can be seen across the racecourse from the paddock orchard, one of a series of garden rooms, hidden away on the edge of the city. Family life and factory life were in some ways never far apart, in other ways, miles apart.

Takeaway on the terrace

Drinks and light snacks are available from the terrace, they can be taken away and you'll find a handful of tables or several benches dotted around to enjoy your refreshments and breathe in the surroundings. Otherwise bring a picnic, pick your spot, and relax on one of the lawns. Don’t miss the second-hand books in the sun room, take time out and browse the shelves. Pre-loved books are always appreciated to keep the shelves topped up.

Useful information:

The house was purchased as a regional office for the National Trust and is not open to visitors.
