Perrow in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales is one of the best locations in Britain
for horticulture, with some of the rarest, oldest and most unique trees from around
the world on show.
The wealth of wildlife and plants make parks and gardens a
great summer attraction for lovers of flora and fauna.
- Why not try deer stalking in an ancient park, experiment
with moth trapping at home or even learn the art of falconry?
