Sewerby Hall and Gardens

One of the main attractions near to the DaisyChain Holidays holiday cottages is Sewerby Hall and Gardens.

Sewerby Hall is located only 5 minutes from the DaisyChain Bungalows.  Only just on the outskirts of Bridlington, Sewerby Hall has recently undergone a £2.6m refurbishment.  The benefit of this was to bring the Hall back to the beautiful condition it was in when it was a stately home.

The contractor was William Birch and Sons. They have recently completed the second phase of the refurbishment. The Project was partly funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.  The interior of the stately home has now been restored to how it would have looked in the year 1900.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council was delighted to receive a confirmed grant of £949,900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund for the planned £2.6m restoration project.

Works included the reinstatement of a fully-functioning service wing and working kitchen. The historic family interiors have been refurbished with specially selected pieces of furniture from the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

There are also new interactive areas of the house.  These include a servant’s life and a working kitchen.  Other interactive elements include ‘playing with toys in the nursery’ and the Amy Johnson exhibition. A section entitled ‘My Sewerby’ is also a new addition.  This is where you can share memories and images about your experiences at Sewerby Hall and Gardens.

The Clock Tower Cafe has also been refurbished.  This is now fully open.

In addition to the stately home at Sewerby Hall there is also a small zoo.  The zoo is at present closed to ensure that improvements can be made.  These improvements will enable it to be pass its zoo inspection.  This ensures that all of the animals are being kept in perfect conditions.  It will also make the zoo friendly for all visitors.

So whatever the weather there is always lots to do in and around Sewerby and Bridlington.
