Sewerby Hall is a historic mansion situated near Bridlington, East Yorkshire, England. It is open to the public and boasts a lot to see on a day out. It is a beautiful house with lovely gardens and a pleasing view out over the North Sea. In this former family home there is an accumulated collection of hundreds of years of paintings, furniture and general interior decoration.
There are many creature which live in the grounds of the hall. Such as this squirrel.
In addition to the high culture at the hall there are seasonal crafts such as the carving above which shows a fairy I think.
The general beauty of the hall’s gardens and the view over the North Sea can be seen here. Classic English country style!
The English aristocracy liked to ennoble themselves by surrounding themselves with neoclassical busts and statues. Here we see a typical example in the hallway of the great house.
Most families like to hang pictures on the wall but the English aristocracy took this to a whole new level. A community of craftsmen and artists served these houses and the families who lived in them were patrons of the arts.
Can you imagine a more classic scene than this from an English country garden? The stone palistrade, the flowers in a stone vase, the neoclassical statue, the curated lawns and the deciduous trees. Timeless and beautiful.
