Original use has been made of square clipped May trees, red, white and pink, in flanking alignment effective at all times whether in flower or berry. From upstairs rooms the belt of woodland marking the River Wear gives way to the quintessential panorama of woods, underscored with bluebells and wild garlic. Formal Beech hedges, clipped Yew and Box and a sentinel of garden statuary form a vista to a fountain, originally in the walled garden at Lambton Castle and culminating in a statue of a stag.
The approach to Biddick Hall is by a long Elm flanked avenue. In Spring time daffodils and beds of iceberg roses line the path to the door. There is an almost maze like quality among the side gardens of shaped Yew and Box. Secreted behind 7 foot Yew hedges two Laburnum arches provide a glorious yellow spectacle.
Behind a brick wall is a beautiful orchard which mixes the managed, haphazard, historic, chaos, old with new plantings, blossom laden boughs, scores of daffodils and bluebells thus giving the lazy, hazy summertime feeling.
The Italian Garden, bordered by brick walls with Roses, Yew and Box has a central mosaic brick path with side paths in oyster shell. A beech arch, and a central feature being a stone church window laid flat are ideas of the gardens creator, Lord Lambton.
In the distance a pigeon cree glimpses into view between the trees. Biddick gardens are a photographers paradise, a brides delight and a memory forever.
