Breezy Knees Garden
OS Grid reference- SE 673 554
Situated at Warthill on the eastern outskirts of York, some 5 miles from the city centre, Breezy Knees features award winning gardens, a specialist perennial nursery and cafe.
Established in just 14 years from farmland in the Vale of York by Colin and Marylen Parker, the stunning gardens cover 15 acres with vibrant borders, sparkling fountains and a myriad of colourful blossom. The garden is designed as a series of garden spaces with different characters.
With over 6,000 different varieties of plants, there's always lots to see in the garden, with the extensive borders that form the heart of the gardens providing a succession of flowers all the way through from May to the end of September.
Complementing these are a series of seasonal highlights, starting in May and June with the tranquillity of the Pond and Shade Garden, special collections of irises and peonies and both the Rock and Shade Gardens, with their mass of early summer blooms. By mid-summer the annual meadow is at its best, the Cottage Garden is brimming with colour and the Rose Garden is full of fragrance. Both the special September Garden and the Conifer Garden, with its majestic grasses, will be at their peak as the season draws to a close.
The Gardens are situated at Common Lane in Warthill, 5 miles east of York city centre. 1 mile off the A64 and 2 miles off the A166 and are brown signposted from the A166 York - Bridlington road.
