Ingleby Manor is surrounded by its own gardens and grounds but is also in a naturally secluded position. On three sides the 1000 foot high Cleveland Hills rise to the moors and create an amphitheatre around the Greenhow valley, and on the fourth, a half-mile private avenue connects the house to Ingleby village and the outside world.


It is a retreat for all seasons. Wood anemones, bluebells and wild garlic in Spring make a spectacular carpet under the lime trees. In Summer the formal rose garden and herbaceous borders in the walled garden are at their best and create a perfect setting for games of croquet, barbecues or just relaxing in the sun. Children's toys and swing are available. Cricket, handball, football and rounders keep the older ones occupied.


Children delight in the ponies, ducks, waterhens, rabbits and hedgehogs wandering about in the traffic-free environment, and pheasants and wild roe deer come up to the house from the woods, where countless birds, including a hoopoe in May 1995, also hide. Ingleby Beck winds its way through the grounds on its way from the hills to join the River Leven and fishermen can pit their wits against the wild brown trout.
The largest stretch of heather-covered moorland in the whole of England is on our doorstep and is in full bloom in August/ early September.

In Winter, brisk walks in pure air and sparkling snow work up an appetite, and the mood for enjoying a good book by the fire.

 

For a leisurely stroll, a woodland walk along the stream leads to the village to visit the little 12th Century church, returning along the bottom of the hills by Bank Foot Farm and across the fields. For more serious walkers, a walk and climb of about 30 minutes brings you onto the Cleveland Way Walk, the Lyke Wake Walk and the Coast to Coast Walk.
