These historic gardens date back over 400 years. Their most renowned owner was the Countess of Warwick, mistress of Edward VII. In 1902 she commissioned leading designer Harold Peto to create stunning formal gardens. Abandoned in 1950 after the demolition of the house the gardens were forgotten for nearly 45 years. In 1993 an ambitious restoration programme was started. Today the 23 acres of gardens have a magical atmosphere, as the splendour of a century ago is gently revealed, allowing the visitor to imagine their past glories and enjoy their tranquil present.
Entry to the Gardens of Easton Lodge costs just £3.50 (children free). Picnics welcome. Home-made refreshments are on sale during opening hours (12 noon to 6pm). Children’s activities are being organised on some of the days (see website for details).
