Thorp Perrow Park, Garden or Woodland in Bedale, North Yorkshire, England


Aboretum, Woodland Garden, Bird of Prey and Mammal Centre

Thorp Perrow Arboretum is one of the finest private collections of trees and shrubs in the country. This 85 acre arboretum is unique to Britain, if not Europe, in that it was the creation of one man, Colonel Sir Leonard Ropner (1895 - 1977) and is now owned and managed by Sir John Ropner.

Situated in the peaceful and unspoilt Yorkshire Dales, not far from the historic town of Bedale, Thorp Perrow is an exciting place to explore offering something for everyone. This tranquil and peaceful haven is home to some of the largest and rarest trees and shrubs in England. A treasure trove of specimen trees and woodland walks. There are tree trails, nature trail and children's trail, a large lake, picnic area and children's play area c omplete with wild flower area with identification board, bird identification board. The Arboretum also embraces the Milbank Pinetum planted by Lady Augusta Milbank in the mid-nineteenth century, and the medieval Spring Wood dating back to the 16th century.

Woodland walks open onto views across the lake and towards the more formal gardens at the front of the great house. Thorp Perrow provides interest all year round but perhaps the most popular times are the spring when you can witness one of the finest and most extensive plantings of daffodils in the north of England, including some old and unusual varieties. This is followed by many of the trees covered with blossom, carpets of bluebells and bold drifts of wild flowers. Later in the year the autumn provides dramatic effects and stunning colours. Guided tours are available at certain times throughout the year. The paths through the Arboretum are mown regularly but other areas only once a year to provide an ideal habitat for the many wild flowers, birds and insects that you will see.
