Our View

Located just five miles east of York, the 15-acre Breezy Knees has over 6,000 varieties of plants that create vibrant borders and a succession of flowers from May through to the end of September. The Pond and Shade Gardens are best visited in May and June for the irises and peonies and the Rose Garden and Cottage Garden are a riot of colour by mid-summer; the September Garden and the Conifer Garden come into their own later in the year. The adjoining nursery sells over 1,500 varieties of plants, many rare, and many able to withstand harsh Yorkshire weather.

About The area

Discover North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire, with its two National Parks and two designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is England’s largest county and one of the most rural. This is prime walking country, from the heather-clad heights of the North York Moors to the limestone country that is so typical of the Yorkshire Dales – a place of contrasts and discoveries, of history and legend.

The coastline offers its own treasures, from the fishing villages of Staithes and Robin Hood Bay to Scarborough, one time Regency spa and Victorian bathing resort. In the 1890s, the quaint but bustling town of Whitby provided inspiration for Bram Stoker, who set much of his novel, Dracula, in the town. Wizarding enthusiasts head to the village of Goathland, which is the setting for the Hogwarts Express stop at Hogsmeade station in the Harry Potter films.

York is a city of immense historical significance. It was capital of the British province under the Romans in AD 71, a Viking settlement in the 10th century, and in the Middle Ages its prosperity depended on the wool trade. Its city walls date from the 14th century and are among the finest in Europe. However, the gothic Minster, built between 1220 and 1470, is York’s crowning glory.
