On top of the Wold
As part of the National Garden Scheme, the gardens of the Wold Top Brewery opened to visitors this weekend. We were blessed with sunshine as we drove through the stunning countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds to Hunmanby Grange, only a few miles from the coast.
Well-kept gardens, courtesy of volunteers, encircled the house and the lawned areas were immaculate. There were twisty paths, quirky ornaments, water features and children’s play areas with views borrowed from the surrounding landscape. Plants were on sale, as were drinks, locally manufactured beers, ice cream and burgers.
We passed on the tour of the brewery but, after sampling the beer, bought a bottle of Wold Gold as a souvenir of our visit.
