MALTON, YO17 8NG
Scampston Hall is a privately owned country house just east of Malton, with extensive landscaped grounds and a remarkable modern, formal garden. The house itself was extensively remodelled in 1801 by the architect Thomas Leverton with fine Regency interiors, and has some good of works of art. The current owners, Charles and Miranda Legard, came to the property in 1987; in 1998 they called in Dutch designer Piet Oudolf to remodel the kitchen garden and create an excitingly modern design within its walls. The result is a breathtaking display which is well worth a visit in its own right. The latest project in the gardens is the preservation of the conservatory - watch that space.
