Volunteer run and maintained gardens, with a fascinating history and very friendly vibe.
Open in February for snowdrops and then every Thursday from April to the end of October and one Sunday a month April to October.
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 by the volunteers, allowing the visitor to imagine their past glories and enjoy their tranquil present.
Homemade refreshments. Nature and craft activities for younger visitors on Sundays. Picnics and well behaved dogs on leads welcome. For detail on specific open day attractions see the website.
