Sewerby Hall

So having finished our time at the bay it was time to say goodbye to the oystercatchers and head home. As we left over the moors we couldn’t help bu notice how stunning the heather is looking this year.

To break up the journey we stopped at Sewerby Hall. Sewerby Hall is on the edge of Bridlington. A Georgian house that was added to through the 19th century. The orangery looks particularly fine, but there was a wedding on so didn’t get a proper look.

The zoo

The house has a zoo located in the old stable space. The animals have moderate enclosures. The Capuchin monkey like looked a bit lonely.

I much proffered the wildlife we saw roaming free on the grounds.

In the walled gardens Alice got let out of the howdah for a wander. She was very taken by the pond. Eventually I would like a small water feature in our garden to attract in the frogs.

I was quite taken by the artichokes. They need a decent space though for effect so I don’t think they’ll make it into my garden.

I can make more space for alliums and globe thistles though.

One thought on “Sewerby Hall”

  1. I enjoyed your stroll today. I had not thought of oystercatchers in a long time. Although I heard them, I hadn’t identified one until an English businessman commented on what he had seen. I was walking by the beach (on Long Island) on my usual walk, and he was exercising before going to meetings. Of course, I went home and looked up the bird. Soon I was able to spot it when it flew by. I hoped to see the man again, but it rained the next day, and he probably went back to England.
