Gardens

There are some lovely gardens within day trip distance of any of our cottages. There are also many open gardens in the area throughout the Summer, watchout for the signs, some can be really fabulous.

The Arboretum Trust, Kew at Castle Howard

This peaceful valley is home to a collection of rare trees and shrubs. Walk or picnic in a secure environment, some of our most beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
Enjoy our rare wild flowers appearing in this ancient parkland. Glimpse some of the great variety of bird life, green woodpeckers, owls, tits, and even our resident kingfishers.
An inspiration for photographers and artists, but most of all a tranquil landscape for everyone to enjoy.
Round off your visit with a visit to the new café, selling excellent tea and coffee and home made produce.

Walled Garden Helmsley

Step inside this magical hidden garden and discover surprises round every corner. Set against the backdrop of Helmsley Castle, the towering walls surround five acres of beautiful gardens with many unusual varieties of flowers, vegetables and herbs. Stroll through the newly restored Victorian glasshouses or picnic on the lawn. Friendly staff and volunteers are on hand to give advice. 70 varieties of Heritage apples, British Clematis Society’s National Display Garden, 34 Victorian indoor vines and modern outdoor vines. Vinehouse cafe, craft workshops and unusual plant nursery complete the perfect day out.

Harlow Carr, Harrogate

Harlow Carr is the newest and most northerly of the four RHS gardens.
The garden is seeing exciting new developments while retaining its uniquely tranquil and welcoming atmosphere. Probably the most spectacular are the dramatic new Rose Revolution borders that edge the path to “Gardens through Time”. Their use of mixed perennials, grasses and roses beautifully combines sustainable practice, inspirational horticulture and a contemporary twist! 
The garden offers interest for all seasons – from vegetables to wildflowers and alpines to woodland – and now the fabulous Bettys Café Tea Rooms and Shop offering delicious food and the best teas and coffees. 

Peasholm Park, Scarborough

This peaceful valley is home to a collection of rare trees and shrubs. Walk or picnic in a secure environment, some of our most beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
Enjoy our rare wild flowers appearing in this ancient parkland. Glimpse some of the great variety of bird life, green woodpeckers, owls, tits, and even our resident kingfishers.

Castle Howard Grounds

The Gardens and Park are breathtaking throughout the seasons and, with many diverse areas to explore, visitors can find peace and tranquility whichever path they choose. 

Visitors can enjoy extensive walks through woodlands, formal gardens, along terraces or beside water, and view the buildings and sculptures in the landscape. Memorable sights include the Atlas Fountain, the Temple of the Four Winds, the Mausoleum and New River Bridge. 

Burnby Hall Gardens, Pocklington

These gardens, are home to the National Collection of Hardy Water Lilies – the biggest such collection to be found in a natural setting in Europe. The two lakes that contain the lilies are set in eight acres of beautiful gardens – including rock gardens, a natural shrubbery, formal beds, the Secret Garden, a Victorian Garden and many other attractions.

What Our Guests Say

Another excellent New Year break. We stay with Eastgate Cottages every year and sometimes twice a year. Always of a very high standard, we have never been disappointed, only delighted. We treat this as our home in the country and wouldn’t go anywhere else. It doesn’t get any better, just book, you will love it.

What Our Guests Say

Relaxing September Break We were in the Readman cottage. We received a warm welcome and the welcome pack of cheese and cake was delicious. The facilities were excellent and the location was ideal for walking and visiting places of interest.The steam railway is on the doorstep and the bird of prey centre in Helmsley well worth a visit. Helen and John were very helpful in recommending places to visit and where to have my car checked which had developed a problem.

What Our Guests Say

Perfect. Pickering was chosen as an equidistant base for the coast, York and Harrogate and really could not have been better. Pickering is great with lots of amenities.  We stayed in the Farmhouse and everything was spot on. The place was clean and we had a bit of cake and cheese to welcome us. The place exudes quality from the kitchen utensils, fixtures and fittings through to the bedding and towels. The staff were great and the whole set up was just perfect. Thanks to all.

What Our Guests Say

“The cottage was of such a high standard real home from home feel. The cleanliness was spot on. We have visited Eastgate cottages for 16 yrs now and very often see the same people returning. Over that time we have stayed in most of the cottages at Eastgate and never had any cause to complain about anything.”

- Catherine and James, Nottingham
