Septem­ber 11, 1.30–5pm. £6, chil­dren free, plants for sale. In the rolling North York­shire coun­try­side lies the sump­tu­ous gar­den of Lit­tlethorpe Manor, which ex­em­pli­fies the qual­ity of gar­dens that are rarely open, but can be dis­cov­ered through the NGS. Eleven acres around the el­e­gant manor (not open) are di­vided into two ar­eas; the up­per gar­den around the house is im­mac­u­lately for­mal, but soft­ened by gor­geous plant­ing and in­cludes the fas­ci­nat­ing walled gar­den planted with a cir­cu­lar pat­tern based on the cy­cle of the sea­sons. The larger lower area leads seam­lessly to sur­round­ing park­land. The over­all pic­ture in­te­grates for­mal and nat­u­ral wa­ter, top­i­ary and an el­e­gant clas­si­cal pavil­ion. You will want to stay all af­ter­noon, be­fore re­tir­ing to the mar­quee to savour home­made tea. Visit www.ngs.org.uk
