Sewerby Hall and Gardens
Formerly gatehouses and lodge to the Grade 1 listed Georgian House of Sewerby Hall, these period properties have been carefully renovated to a very good standard, resulting in three unique detached holiday cottages. Visitors can enjoy access to Sewerby Hall and Gardens (hall open Easter to September) with its impressive historic interiors, collection of memorabilia once owned by the famous local aviator, Amy Johnson and a frequently changing exhibition programme. The 50-acres of grounds with spectacular views over Bridlington Bay include the award-winning landscaped gardens and numerous woodland walks, with a huge variety of wildlife.

Sewerby Hall in Time of War
Duty Calls at Sewerby Hall will contrast the experiences of the Lloyd Greame family and their estate workers during the First World War with what happened during the Second World War.
In the inter-war years, the shifting fortunes of country house estates resulted in the house being sold off to Bridlington council for whom the gardens were more important.
The house was subsequently requisitioned and served as a convalescent home for RAF personnel: a world away from being the nerve centre of a landed estate.
