The Gardens
Ebbertson Hall

Ebberston Hall near Pickering in the North York Moors is a stunning listed building. The 17th century Palladian villa still has what remains of the original, naturally fed water gardens and is a fascinating example of architecture. 

Ebberston Hall was built in 1718 by the Architect Colen Campbell for the MP for Scarborough, William Thompson and his mistress.

Other houses designed this architect include Stourhead in Wiltshire, Mereworth Castle in Kent and Houghton Hall in Norfolk.

When William Thompson died in 1744 the estate was passed to the Hotham family and it remained with them until 1814 until they sold it to George Osbaldestone the sporting ‘Squire of England’.

Then when the Squire had run through his fortune and the estates of Allerston and Ebberston were heavily mortgaged, Ebberston was bought by

The Cayleys of who lived close by in Brompton bought the estate from the Squire in 1848 and turned it into a farm house.

The property is currently owned by Major de Wend Fenton’s son, Mr West de Wend Fenton.

About half the original water garden still remains; this is fed by natural springs rising from the surrounding dale.

Open to the public all year round.
