The Wensleydale ‘Tulip festival’ may be finished but Constable Burton (above) still has a lot to commend itself.
The house by John Carr, sadly not open to the public, is set in beautiful countryside at the entrance to Wensleydale. Fine trees and woodland walks combine with an interesting collection of alpines and extensive shrubs and roses. Explore the stream garden with its large architectural plants and reflection ponds or take a walk in the adjoining Parkland.
A wide range of Tulips in all shapes and sizes were on show in May.
