The Welcome to Yorkshire garden was inspired by the Yorkshire Dales, a picturesque area that epitomises the essence of the county, and is world famous for artisan Wensleydale cheeses, quintessential buttercup meadows and rich flora. Set on the edge of a woodland, a tumbling beck runs past a stone bothy into soft pastures. The colour scheme had hints of purple, pink and white with a mixture of dense and varied planting. Dry limestone walls dissected the meadow land and separated the bothy, with its cultivated and romantic cottage garden, from the natural landscape.

Sponsored by Welcome to Yorkshire, the garden celebrates Yorkshire’s stunning scenery, natural materials, traditional crafts and artisan food production, and is intended to inspire the public to visit this iconic county and experience its serene beauty firsthand.
