Whalton Manor Gardens, in the unspoilt village of Whalton, is one of Northumberland's 'must-see' gems. In a vast county renowned for its diverse landscape, including beautiful golden beaches, magnificent valleys and wild heather moorland, Whalton's proximity to Scotland, Alnwick and Newcastle make it a central attraction to visitors to the North East.
The historic Whalton Manor, altered by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1908, is surrounded by 3 acres of magnificent walled gardens, designed by Lutyens with the help of Gertrude Jekyll. The gardens have been developed by the Norton family since the 1920's and include extensive herbaceous borders, 30 yard peony border, rose garden, listed summerhouses, pergolas and walls, festooned with rambling roses and clematis.
