Parcevall Hall and garden

Parcevall Hall (also known as Parceval Hall) and its gardens are located near the village of Appletreewick in Wharfedale, North Yorkshire, England. It comprises a Grade II* listed manor house and landscaped gardens. [1] Currently owned by Walsingham College and leased by the Diocese of Bradford it is used as a retreat house and conference centre.[2]

The gardens comprise 24 acres (97,000 m2) of displays, featuring trees and shrubs and herbaceous borders. They are the largest and the only Royal Horticultural Society and English Heritage registered gardens open to the public in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.[3] Created from 1927 onwards they began falling into decline after the death in 1960 of Sir William Milner, 8th Baronet of Nun Appleton. In the mid 1980s, the process of restoration of the gardens began, which 25 years later have resulted in them returning to their former glory.

The gardens are open to the public from April to October.[3]
